Young Diatomists Challenge: Diatom microscopy images for a book for 9-10 year old children

An exciting new project awaits those interested in sharing and increasing the visibility of our beloved (and sometimes dreadded), but always beautiful diatoms. Emanuela Samaritani is preparing a series of science books for 9-10 year old children. Most of it will be illustrated by a professional illustrator, but for the end of the book about diatoms, Emanuela has asked us to make pictures of diatoms available to her. We would need some light microscopy pictures of both freshwater and marine diatoms from different locations, but mostly images of particular species. All images will be duly credited and those of you who participate could get one of the wonderful copy of the book.
If you are interested, please contact the young diatomists email.
