Caption: Trichonympha campanula. Light micrograph of many one-celled protozoan organisms, Trichonympha camp- anula. They are flagellates (hypermastigote) that live in the gut of termites. Their flagellae used in movement are seen as hair-like structures on the surface of each cell. These animals are pear- shaped, with the cell contents appearing granular. Many termites and wood-eating cockroaches rely on such flagellate organisms in order to digest wood. These organisms are particularly efficient at digesting the fibrous cellulose found in wood. Phase contrast with blue background. Magnification: x65 at 35mm size.
