Paper Abstract

During the past few years, there has appeared much new and interesting data concerning the distribution of bacteriomorphic structures in both meteorites (carbonaceous chondrites) and in Earth rocks of different ages (Achaean to Recent). The bacterial forms studied are of very diverse morphologies including cocci, filaments, rod-shaped forms, etc. The biomorphic forms that are encountered in Earth rocks are practically indistinguishable from the biomorphic microstructures that are found in meteorites. Therefore, it has become necessary to compare and correlate bacteriomorphic structures from Earth rocks and from meteorites. In order to better understand this problem, we have initiated efforts to compile an Atlas of Bacteriomorphic Images.
