Abstract

The anchialine system at Bundera sinkhole, Australia, exhibits pronounced hydrogeochemical structure through depth that is reflected in the composition and distribution of the fauna. It is a strongly structured microbial ecosystem the components of which also change with depth and which is dominated by sulfur bacteria and chemolithotrophic microbial classes.
