Microscale level of a community of diatoms, unicellular algae.  Winner from the 2008 Science and Engineering Visualization Challenge presented in the 9/26/08 issue of Science. The winning photography entry, "Glass Forest," depicts at the microscale level a community of diatoms, unicellular algae characterized by a peculiar glass-like cell wall, attached to the basal segment of a marine invertebrate and captured by Scanning Electron Microscope. - Maria De Stefano, The Second University of…

Diatoms are microscopic unicellular algae and are one of the most common types of phytoplankton. Oceanographer Paul Hargreaves took the images with an electron microscope, and then the artist Faye Darling using design programs colored them.

Diatom, a unicellular algae. I love looking at diatoms under the microscope. You can easily see than under 250x magnification

Diatom, a unicellular algae. The cell walls of diatoms are made of silica and come in a variety of shapes. These microscopic algae may be either freshwater or saltwater.

1_Diatoms are a major group of typically unicellular algae, and are one of the most common varieties of phytoplankton. Unique to diatoms, their cells are encased in a cell wall of silica (silicon dioxide), which is responsible for their crystalline appearance. Diatoms are autotrophic, meaning they derive their nutrition from their surroundings by means of photosynthesis or chemosynthesis. This places them in the role of producers in the food chain.
