||P.9 caption to figure 6: "Typically, about 90% of the surface community dies within a few mm to cm of burial due to a variety of factors such as predation (grazing), viral attack, oxygen levels, toxic waste products, or nutrient and energy limitation (left panel). A small subset of the surface population is able to survive at the harsh conditions faced during burial and will further adapt by growing small cell sizes to reduce maintenance costs." P.10 right column top paragraph: "About 90% of the surface community dies within a few mm to cm of burial (e.g., primary source, Figure 6) due to a variety of factors such as predation, viral attack, oxygen levels, toxic waste products, or nutrient and energy limitation. A small subset of the surface population is, however, pre-adapted to the harsh conditions faced during burial (Starnawski, 2016)."
