Comments P.677 left column 2nd paragraph: "In another case, Becker et al. investigated the dispersal of four organisms through fractured crystalline bedrock: a gram-positive rod (Microbacterium sp., ∼1.4 to 1.9 μm in length), a motile gram-negative rod (Pseudomonas sp., ∼1.5 to 2.2 μm in length), a nonmotile mutant of Pseudomonas, and a gram-positive coccus (Staphylococcus sp., ∼0.5 to 0.8 μm in diameter) (primary source)."
