Abstract

We analyze the distribution of chemical elements in microbial communities from various hydrothermal ecosystems (the Kurile-Kamchatka volcanic belt, the Baikal rift zone) and various laboratory cultures by means of microXFA-SR. We describe various techniques for combining optical and microXFA-SR X-ray cell images. The combination of images allows us to demonstrate the accumulation of chemical elements in cells of bacteria, cyanobacteria, and diatom and green algae.
