Happy Friday!
Ditylum is a commonly used centric diatom in growth experiments with competitive inhibition and clonal diversity. Due to their distinctive morphology, they can be ideal for isolation and culturing.
After hurricane Florence, I isolated two individual cells (semi-washed) to create separate monocultures. When I culture, I always try and isolate several cells in case one culture does not take. I always have to have that backup!

It's common for copepods to enclose their eggs within a sac attached to the female's body until they hatch, however some species' eggs produce a tough shell so they can lie dormant for extended periods of time in a pond.

The white flowers and fluffy underlying sepals of this climbing shrub are what gives it the nickname, Old Man's Beard.

Phyllobius roboretanus weevils can be distinguished by the placement of their antennae. If the antennae emerges from top of the rostrom, it is a Phyllobius, whereas if it emerges from the side it is a Polydrusus.

#REPOST In herbivores (like this rabbit specimen), the caecum found in the digestive system serves a very important function: breaking down the cellulose found in the creature's plant-rich diet. In humans, this function no longer occurs, and the remainder of the caecum is known as the appendix.

#DidYouKnow? Daphnia pulex contain 8,000 more genes than are present in the human genome. It was the first crustacean to have its genome sequenced.

#REPOST In many organisms, the epidermis serves a variety of functions, including water absorption and storage. In the classification of plants known as "succulents," this is even more important, as they are known for the ability to store water in arid climates or soils.
