Volcanic calderas delineate biogeographic provinces among Yellowstone thermophiles

, : Volcanic calderas delineate biogeographic provinces among Yellowstone thermophiles. Environmental Microbiology 10(7): 1681-1689

It has been suggested that the distribution of microorganisms should be cosmopolitan because of their enormous capacity for dispersal. However, recent studies have revealed that geographically isolated microbial populations do exist. Geographic distance as a barrier to dispersal is most often invoked to explain these distributions.

Volcanism since 0.64 Ma produced rhyolite domes/flows (Plateau Rhyolite). The Obsidian Creek...
