Short summary
Biomineralization of (magnesium) calcite and vaterite by bacterial isolates was observed using isolates from limestone associated groundwater, rock and soil. More than 92 % of isolates could form carbonates with different crystal macromorphologies. Using different conditions like varying temperature, pH or media components but also cocultivation to test for collaborative effects of sympatric bacteria, mechanisms of calcium carbonate formation were studied.
