Modern and ancient microbialites in Western Australia

On this video-based virtual field experience, join paleontologist Heidi Allen to explore primary sedimentary structures built by microbes. Heidi works at the Geological Survey of Western Australia, and here presents a look at that region’s wealth of stromatolites, thrombolites, and related structures – both from the fossil record and growing alive and well in the modern world!
