Caption: Scanning electron micrograph of spores of the slime mould Dictyostelium discoideum on a bacterial colony. Slime moulds are a curious division of plants with many of the characteristics of animals. They consist of a slow-moving mass of amoeboid protoplasm, which engulfs particles of solid food which it encounters. They reproduce however by spores, shed from a spore tower, produced by a vegetative body called the plasmodium. The majority of slime moulds are saprophytes, feeding on dead or decaying organic matter. Magnification: x5200 (at 10x8 size).
