Movile Cave hosts one of the world's most diverse subsurface invertebrate communities. In the absence of matter and energy input from the surface, this ecosystem relies entirely on in situ primary productivity by chemoautotrophic microorganisms.

The microbial biofilms that cover the water surface, the cave walls, and thedoi:10.3390/d13030128 fatcat:wcv5zlea5zestkhrdkvhrc3h4y
