Summary
Abstract: Quartz stone sublithic microbial communities and underlying soil, retrieved from the Vestfold Hills were investigated using a variety of traditional and molecular methods. Although direct epifluorescent counts of the sublithic biota averaged 1.1 x 109 cells g-1 dry weight and underlying soil, 0.5 x 109 cells g-1 dry weight, viable counts were on average 3-orders of magnitude higher in sublithic ...
