Dirty, Crusty Meals Fit for (Long-Dormant) MicrobesExternal link

Scientists at Berkeley Lab and the Joint Genome Institute have revealed that even dusty, harsh desert environments contain a variety of microbes, which, when awoken, consume a virtual smorgasbord of metabolites; each type of microbe consuming a small range of metabolites, thereby avoiding pure competition and likely increasing species diversity.
