    "We suspect that, because limited but chemically complex nutrients enter the cave system, very few microbial species are capable of encoding all the necessary uptake and catabolic reactions to support growth. To overcome this limitation, selfish competition for resources is replaced by cooperative and mutualistic associations, such as have been seen in biofilm communities."
