Abstract
The effect of biological fractionation of carbon and sulfur isotopes is described now for many microbial processes. Stable isotope composition of carbon and sulfur gases and minerals, produced by microorganisms depends on isotope composition of initial substrates, part of substrate consumed by microorganisms and rate of microbial metabolism.
