Caption: Marine diatom. False-colour scanning electron micrograph of a marine diatom (unknown species). The diatoms form a division of nonflagellate unicellular algae, having delicate silica cell walls divided into two overlapping halves. Diatoms are split into two classes: the pennate diatoms which have a bilateral symmetry (such as that seen here); and the centric diatoms which have a radial symmetry. The cell walls of dead diatoms often form a deep deposit on the bed of lakes and seas; this deposit eventually forms diatomaceous earth. Magnification x300 at 35mm size.
