Fig. S1. Soil moistures at the Wave Hill site from 1 October 2006 to 3 October 2007. The broken line represents the threshold moisture for photosynthetic activity in the cyanobacteria communities, as determined from laboratory experiments (see text). Soil moistures exceeded this threshold for 263 h on 75 days.
Fig. S2. Distribution of size of quartz (top), agate (middle), and prehnite (bottom) rocks that supported hypolithic cyanobacteria at the Wave Hill site, Northern Territory, Australia. Quartz rocks were subdivided into clear crystals (open bars) and milky-white translucent rocks (filled bars).
