The microbial research conducted in Carlsbad Caverns by Dr. Diana Northup's research group was featured in a recent episode of PBS's "Untold Earth". The episode is titled, "This Upside Down Cave Is a Microscopic Warzone", and is described as follows:

"Below the Chihuahuan Desert in southeastern New Mexico, lies an extensive system of limestone caves, among them the famed Carlsbad Cavern, home to one of North America's largest underground chambers. But there is more to this subterranean world than gigantic geological formations. It is also ground zero for a microbial war that’s been raging for thousands of years, right beneath our feet."
