Chlamydomonas sp. algae, SEM

Green algae. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of two Chlamydomonas sp. green algae. These single-celled organisms are aquatic, living in freshwater habitats. They use their two, tail- like flagella for swimming. These algae are also photosynthetic; they contain two types of the pigment chlorophyll, which they use to capture sunlight energy for the manufacture of sugars. Magnification: x1770 at 6x7cm size

This print showcases the intricate beauty of Chlamydomonas sp. algae, a type of green algae found in freshwater habitats. Under the lens of a scanning electron microscope (SEM), these single-celled organisms reveal their vibrant colors and unique structure. The image captures two Chlamydomonas sp. algae, each equipped with two tail-like flagella that enable them to gracefully swim through their aquatic environment. These microscopic creatures are not only motile but also possess an extraordinary ability to harness sunlight energy for photosynthesis. Within their cells, Chlamydomonas sp. algae harbor two types of chlorophyll pigment, which play a crucial role in capturing light and converting it into sugars—a process essential for their survival and growth. At a magnification level of x1770, this 6x7cm print allows us to appreciate the intricate details of these fascinating organisms. The vivid colors and delicate structures on display remind us of the immense diversity present within our natural world. This mesmerizing photograph serves as a testament to the wonders hidden within even the tiniest corners of our planet—an invitation to explore further into the realm of botany, cellular biology, and beyond.
