Caption: Biodegradable plastics research. Plastic bags being studied during research into the use of bacteria to decompose plastics. A light micrograph of the bacteria is seen behind the plastic bags. Biodegradable plastics are those produced using materials that will decompose, as opposed to ordinary plastics that pollute the environment for hundreds of years. This work is taking place at the French Development Research Institute (IRD), which studies the relationship between humans and the environment. Photographed in Marseilles, France.
