|Colorized SEM image of an R. catawbiense root cross-sec-
tion with ericoid hyphal coils visible inside the epidermal cells, from
a mesocosm inoculated with R. maximum (novel) soil, with roots
colored brown and fungal hyphae colored green. By Taz Mueller (Biological Sciences ’18).
|SEM image of Halteria, a freshwater ciliate found in many fresh water ecosystems. Little jumpy movements are characteristic for Halteria, a strategy possibly evolved to defend itself against predators.|
