Caption: Three species of slime mould. The fruiting bodies of three different species of slime mould are seen here growing on a rotting log. Circular white globules (at left); brown oval structures (centre); elongated white bodies on stalks (above right). Slime moulds are classified in the fungal group Myxomycetes, but they have both plant and animal characteristics. Apart from their fruiting bodies containing spore cells, slime moulds are made up of multicellular masses of protoplasm that move and ingest food and behave like protozoans. Slime moulds are widely distributed in damp conditions. Photographed in the rainforest at Jatun Sacha, Ecuador.
