Microlife is everywhere–on your food, in your hair, and around the house.
Even though we can't see many of them, these tiny critters play an important role in our world. Without them, we would have not food to eat or oxygen to breathe.
Students discover the microanimals, microfungi, monerans, and protists that make our lives possible, and learn how to collect, view, and identify types of microlife; how to use a microscope, and how to take photomicrographs. Appendices, index. 288 pp., softcover
