Description: This American Mineralogist scholarly paper (PDF format) reports the detection of living colonies of nano-organisms (nanobes) on Triassic and Jurassic sandstones and other substrates. Dr. Philippa Uwins and her research team discovered the nanobe structures while conducting research on Australian sandstones. Here they analyze the nanobes by microscopy (scanning and transmission electron microscopy), X-ray spectroscopy, and molecular staining (e.g. DAPI, Acridine Orange, and Feulgen staining). The article features color and black and white photomicrographs.
