Caption: False-colour scanning electron micrograph of the green algae Pleurococcus sp., which forms a powdery, green covering on the bark of trees. It is seen here on horse chestnut bark. It is a terrestrial algae also found on rocks & soil. The cells are roughly spherical, can withstand drought, & are able to imbibe water directly from the air. They are single, or grouped in two- or four-celled colonies. Under moist conditions Pleurococcus will develop branching filaments, visible here. Reproduction is by division & is frequent when conditions are good, enabling rapid colonization of an area. Magification: x135 at 35mm size, x235 at 6x4.5cm size.
