Tiny Creatures under Foldscope, that has bloomed my Mind.

While working on these algal culture what i have observed that, there were lots of algal diversity in mats and wall scrapped sample, and these different habitat include different algal diversity ranging from coccus to filamentous forms.

Viewing Rhizopus under foldscope

Since in the workshop I was expecting the bread mold to be Rhizopus But it turned to be Aspergillus species. To make my concepts clear Teacher handed me preserved material of Rhizopus.I prepared its slide and observed it under foldscope and now could make out clear cut difference between Rhizopus and Aspergillus. I failed to…

The moldy bread that Mamta got from mess by explored using foldscope. I was sure it would be Rhizopus. But it turned out to be some other mold ——- probably Aspergillus species. I could see loose sores (conidia) spread all over.

Green Algae

Closterium cells are crescent-shaped or elongate and lack spines. Some are quite straight and needle-like, while others are much broader with curved ends. The ends of the cell are usually tapered and may be pointed or rounded. Each semicell has a single axial, ridged chloroplast with at least one pyrenoid Place: SINGERBAND VILLAGE DIST. CACHAR…

Blue Green Algae

Anabaena is a genus of filamentous cyanobacteria that exist as plankton. They are known for nitrogen-fixing abilities, and they form symbiotic relationships with certain plants, such as the mosquito fern. They are one of four genera of cyanobacteria that produce neurotoxins, which are harmful to local wildlife, as well as farm animals and pets. Production…

Blue Green Algae

Scytonema is a genus of photosynthetic cyanobacteria that contains over 100 species. It grows in filaments that form dark mats. Many species are aquatic and are either free-floating or grow attached to a submerged substrate, while others species grow on terrestrial rocks, wood, soil, or plants. Scytonema is a nitrogen fixer, and can provide fixed…

Central raphe fissures oppositely deflected dimorphic crooks, difficult to see in LM. Terminal areas very small triangles in semilateral position. A small apical microforamina segment is present at…

Green Algae

Coelastrum Thalli forming 4, 8, 16, 32 or 64 (-128) celled coenobia to ca. 100 &m diameter, organized as spherical, pyramidal or cuboid, free-floating colonies. Cells more-or-less densely alligned but usually with empty spaces between wall interstices. Cells globose, ovoid, or pyramidal 2-30 &m in maximum dimension. Cells joined at edges by specialized wall plaques…

Blue Green

Oscillatoria is a genus of filamentous cyanobacterium which is named after the oscillation in its movement. Filaments in the colonies can slide back and forth against each other until the whole mass is reoriented to its light source. It is commonly found in watering-troughs waters, and is mainly blue-green or brown-green. Oscillatoria is an organism…

Fresh Water Diatom

Gomphonema Colonial cells that form on branched muscilage stalks that are attached to a subtrate. In girdle view the cells are wedge shaped with an enlarged head at the opposite end of the stalk. Cells have one large plastid that lye mostly on one side of the girdle, but do extend partially onto the other…

Fresh Diatom

Pinnularia is a predominantly fresh-water alga, usually found in ponds and moist soil. They can also be found in springs, estuaries, sediments, and oceans. Pinnularia are elongated elliptical unicellular organisms. Their cell walls are composed chiefly of pectic substances on a rigid silica framework. Their walls are composed of two halves called thecae (or less…
