Caption: Ciliate protozoa. Light micrograph of unidentified ciliate protozoa (class Ciliata) undergoing asexual reproduction. These unicellular micro-organisms can multiply by either of two methods. The cells seen here are forming from one cell, which divided equally into two identical daughter cells (binary fission). Ciliates can also reproduce by budding, where one small cell forms from a larger cell. They are named for the numerous cilia (short, hair-like structures) on the outside of their cell membrane. Dark field illumination. Magnification unknown.
