Caption: Botryococcus alga. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of Botryococcus sp. freshwater algae. Botryococcus forms colonies of oval cells, embedded in tough, irregular mucilage. The mucilage contains lipid globules excreted from the cells. Botryococcus has great potential for algaculture because of the hydrocarbons it produces, which can be chemically converted into fuels. Magnification: x6600 when printed at 10 centimetres wide. Specimen courtesy of Mike Allen, Plymouth Marine Laboratory.
