Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences has created a traveling art exhibit Tiny Giants: Life-sustaining marine microbes at risk.  It consists of large-scale photographic enlargements of marine microbes that tell a collective story of the integral role of marine microbes in keeping the planet balanced and how ongoing changes in the global marine environment are putting that balance at risk. Images were taken using three different microscopes – compound light, confocal, and scanning electron.
