A MicroNaturalist's Notebook

Are you a MicroNaturalist Explorer?
Have you discovered the teaming microlife of ponds, streams, tidepools, moss beds, the soil, and virtually everywhere else in the world, including between the grains of sand on a beach? Whether a student of biology, a seasoned MicroNaturalist, or just a curious individual, you'll enjoy our series of photo essays featuring observations you can make with a good compound microscope, a sense of the mysteries of life waiting to be discovered, some patience, and a desire to ask questions. Bruce Russel
Our MicroNaturalist’s Notebook series was researched, photographed and written by award-winning biological photographer, Bruce J. Russell, during the period from 2003 through 2006. Sadly, Bruce died in a tragic accident near the end of December 2006. Bruce's love for observing microlife through the microscope and for trying to understand these simple, yet surprisingly complex organisms, is captured in these essays. We hope that students will continue to be inspired by his remarkable photography and poignant observations.
