Anopheles mosquito Featured 1 Oct 2003 Image

Anopheles mosquito

Anopheles mosquito. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of an Anopheles stephensi mosquito, the vector for the malaria parasite in Asia. The mosquito flies in search of a human or other animal from which it can suck blood. It lands gently on long, slender legs. The insect's head comprises two compound eyes (pink), two antennae (blue) and complex mouthparts. The proboscis (centre), contains the piercing and sucking instruments necessary to obtain a blood meal. In 2002, scientists created genetically- modified A. stephensi mosquitoes, in which the malaria parasite was unable to multiply, raising hopes that transmission of malaria can be stopped

Diatom algae, Campylodiscus Featured 1 Oct 2003 Image

Diatom algae, Campylodiscus

Diatoms. Coloured scanning electron micrograph of the diatom Campylodiscus hibernicus. The diatoms are a distinctive group of single-celled algae containing about 10, 000 species. They form a large part of the plankton at the base of the marine and freshwater food chains. The characteristic feature of diatoms is their intricately patterned, glass- like cell wall, or frustule, which is impregnated with silica. The frustule consists of 2 halves which fit together like the lid & bottom of a box. It is often decorated with rows of tiny holes, known as striae, which are arranged either radially or on the 2 sides of a central axis. Magnification: x500 at 5x7cm size. x1475 at 8x10ins
