LM of the colonial diatom Fragillaria sp

Light micrograph of the diatom Fragillaria sp.. The filaments seen here are simple colonies of Fragillaria. They consist of a stack of diatoms which have failed to separate following cell division, each glued to its neighbours by a mucilaginous material. Diatoms are a group of single-celled algae distinguished by their intricately-patterned glass-like cell wall or frustule". The frustule consists of two halves, the valves, which fit together like the lid and bottom of a box. Diatoms form an important component of the marine & freshwater plankton. Magnification: x400 at 35mm size."

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases the intricate beauty of a colonial diatom Fragillaria sp. Under the lens, we witness a mesmerizing display of simple colonies formed by stacked diatoms that failed to separate after cell division. These delicate filaments are bound together by a sticky substance known as mucilage, creating an enchanting visual spectacle. Diatoms, belonging to the group of single-celled algae, possess a distinguishing feature - their exquisitely patterned glass-like cell wall or frustule. The frustule is composed of two halves called valves, which interlock like the lid and bottom of a box. This unique structure adds to their allure and makes them stand out in the world of microscopic organisms. Not only visually stunning, but these diatoms also play a vital role in marine and freshwater ecosystems as part of plankton communities. They form an essential component of phytoplankton – tiny plant-like organisms that float near the water's surface and serve as primary producers for many aquatic food chains. With its magnification at x400 on 35mm size film, this photograph offers us an up-close glimpse into nature's wonders. It serves as a reminder that even within seemingly invisible realms lie extraordinary forms waiting to be discovered and appreciated.
