Caption: Transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of the aerobic soil bacterium Pseudomonas fluorescens. The picture shows the whip-like "tails", or flagellae, with which the bacterium moves through the water layer surrounding soil particles. Its name is derived from its production of a yellow- green, water-soluble pigment which fluoresces under ultraviolet light. The TEM was produced by the shadow technique: the bacterium was coated with a layer of carbon, followed by platinum, to produce a surface replica which is used as the microscope specimen. Magnification: x5360 at 35mm size, x10,720 at 6x7cm size, x37,500 at 8x10-inch size. Reference: MICROCOSMOS, figure 5.10, page 94.
