Caption: Bromeliad biotope specimen. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of an amoeboid protist found in the water trapped by a bromeliad plant. These mainly tropical plants have evolved to trap water in their tightly furled leaf structures. This reservoir of water forms a unique ecosystem that supports a biotope of many species that have yet to be recognised. This is a Thecamoeba amoeboid protists, with a tough shell-like pellicle. Magnification: x1300 when printed at 10 centimetres across.
