Caption: Bacteria in the nose. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of bacteria (green) on the surface of the nasal cavity. One of the squamous epithelium cells (lower centre to lower right) is being shed from the lining. Mucus, secreted by cells in the lining of the nose, traps foreign objects, such as bacteria, preventing them from entering the lungs. Magnification: x300 when printed 10 centimetres wide.
