+ - 3.5-Billion-Year-Old Bacterial Ecosystems Found In Australia->

Submitted by minty3
minty3 (2942557) writes "The country’s Pilbara district, home to the world’s oldest rock formations, was found to contain bacterial ecosystems that had never been seen in this area before. The microbially induced sedimentary structures, or MISS, are believed to be 3.5 billion years old. While the cells can no longer be seen under the microscope, there are marks left behind created by large clusters of microbes."
