As exemplified by cobalt–bearing Fe–Mn crusts (ferromanganese stromatolite) of the Magellan Seamounts (Clarion–Clipperton Province), the main stages of the structural evolution of bacterial communities have been recognized. It has been demonstrated that the change of the stages is caused by the effect of major tectonic, volcanic, and other geological events.
