Caption

Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of Photocomposite of the common types of bacteria, primarily skin bacteria. In this image you will see various morphological types of bacteria such as: coccus (coccoid), bacillus (rod), spirillum (spiral) and vibriod. Spherical bacteria include Streptococcus sp. and Staphylococcus sp., rods include Escherichia sp. and Bacillus sp., spirals include Leptospira sp. Spirillum sp., and vibriods include Vibrio sp. In addition, some rod bacteria are motile, having a flagellum or a number of flagella. Some bacteria can be seen dividing (binary fission). The human skin has been considered to harbour a complex microbial ecosystem. Recently it has been shown that over 120 different types of bacteria can occur in the microbiota of the human skin. Magnification: no mag since composite when shortest axis printed at 25 millimetres.
