Idea for Images

Post  ravdawg on Fri Mar 26, 2010 2:06 am

I had a quick idea to share about getting images. I know for myself, and for many students who have taken science related lab courses, we have slaved away at drawing microbes.

Perhaps if there is a demand for it, we could have a subset group of laboratory cultured microorganisms ranging from various Ascomycetes and Basidiomycetes, to others. I'm sure there are a plenty of neat lab drawings floating around. It'd be cool also to indicate the magnification, so the person can get a grasp of it's relative size within the subset, in addition to the number indicator that Dave pointed out.

They could easily be touched up in Photoshop, or left as is, preference really.

[Fungi aren't as boring as they sound, I have a drawing of a Basidiumhttp://www.botany.hawaii.edu/faculty/wong/Bot201/Basidiomycota/Basidium_Development3b.jpg that imitates Batman Laughing]

Somehow tapping into this would be really cool! I just remember hearing long ago at a talk that it's a shame that the students I teach (these being in elementary school) know very little about microbes, even though they represent over 99% of the total biodiversity on the planet (or something like that).

Anything to increase awareness even at the most basic of level would be great! p.s. Love that picture - with a bit of shading and some color it could totally be a card!

I say game on! Microbes (speaking as an alumni of Microbiology) are awesome!
