Description :
A wide range of information is now available on the ecology of rock surface microorganisms and lichens and their role in weathering in particular locations. External environmental conditions as well as rock characteristics determine the type of rock surface community, and thus the style of biological weathering. A simple, preliminary conceptual model can be drawn, which relates biological weathering activity to an environmental stress gradient and which is applicable at a range of scales.
