Caption: Calcareous phytoplankton. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of Coronosphaera mediterranea. This small algal organism (coccolihphore) is surrounded by a skeleton (coccosphere) composed of calcium carbonate plates (coccoliths). When the organism dies, the plates separate. Individual plates have been found in vast numbers and can make up the major component of a particular rock, such as the chalk of England. C. mediterranea is found in marine environments world wide.
