Caption: Light micrograph of the foraminiferan, Nonionina depressula. Foraminifera are single-celled organisms (Protozoa) that secrete a tiny, perfor- ated shell of calcareous or siliceous material. Shell design is unique in each species: in number of shell chambers, size, and pattern of surface pores and sculpting. Nonionina depressula is found near the Island of Helgoland, in the North Sea. Foraminifera are exclusively marine but may occur in salt water lakes. Some species live on the seabed or lake bottom, while others float and are planktonic. Their large numbers contribute to the food chain. Magnification: x50 at 35mm size.
