Calcareous and siliceous biogenic components have been studied in deep-water iron-manganese nodules from the northern and southern Pacific Ocean. Calcareous material consists of foraminifera remains, calcareous algae, and coccolithophorids, whereas siliceous material consists of remains of radiolarians and diatoms, as well as sponge spicules. Structures similar in morphology to coccal and filiform bacteria have been found in both outer and inner sections of the nodules indicating that microorganisms may be directly or indirectly involved in their development.
