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.
