Moss spore capsule (Tortula muralis var. muralis). Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of part of the opening mouth of a capsule (spore case) of moss. Mosses reproduce by means of spores at certain times during their life cycle. The spores are dispersed from the mouth of the capsule, dispersal aided by the wind. Magnification x1380

Salt water centric diatom frustule (skeleton). Diatoms are microscopic, unicellular algae that produce intricate silica (glass) cell walls that overlap like the top and bottom of a box. When diatoms die, their soft, internal parts deteriorate, leaving their hard, porous, glass skeletons behind. Diatoms are found in aquatic environments, and saltwater diatom skeletons appear in the fossil record as early as the Jurassic period (180 million years ago). In the United States, numerous deposits o...

The name “Larimar” comes from a combination of Larissa and Mar and was given to the stone by a Dominican who named the stone after his daughter Larissa and Mar, the Spanish word for sea.

Skin cross-section, showing the epidermis, dermis, perichondrium, elastic cartilage, a myelinated nerve fiber, and a muscular artery. The skin or integument accounts for about 15% of the human body weight. Although various pathogens affect the skin, it also prevents the entry of many to the body's interior.
