Abstract

Weathering of limestone rocks and stones is induced by the activity of several lithobiont communities of lichens and cyanobacteria in the Negev Highlands. Thirteen weathering types induced by lithiobionts were detected on two slopes of a limestone hill along 150m transect. Remnants of rocks that were weathered under past climatic regime exhibit different biogenic weathering patterns than those caused by existing lithobions of the same microhabitats.-from Authors
