QUOTES:

"Geomicrobial activities play a role in (1) mineral formation, (2) mineral degradation, (3) the cycling of organic and inorganic matter, (4) chemical and isotopic fractionation and (5) fossil-fuel genesis and degradation. Microbial mineral degradation includes phenomena such as weathering, bioleaching, and soil and sediment formation and transformation (diagenesis). Microbes contribute, to varying extents, to the genesis and degradation of fossil fuels, including methane, peat, coal and petroleum. Some geomicrobial activities can be commercially exploited in processes such as metal extraction from ores, biogas genesis, commercial tertiary petroleum recovery and environmental bioremediation."   endquote from intro of excerpt of book:

Fungi in Biogeochemical Cycles- Edited by Geoffrey Michael Gadd (British resource)
