Head of a young newt, SEM Featured Print

Head of a young newt, SEM

Head of a young newt. Scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a juvenile (immature) newt. Although this newt is in the last stages of development, it still has gills (frilly structures at top left) on its neck. Gills are specialised organs used for breathing underwater. When tadpoles undergo metamorphosis (developmental changes) into adult newts, their gills change into air-breathing lungs for living on land. Adult newts are mainly terrestrial, only visiting the water to breed

Axolotl, artwork Featured Print

Axolotl, artwork

Axolotl (Ambystoma mexicanum), artwork. This aquatic freshwater amphibian is a neotonic (larva-like) salamander. The larval form fails to undergo metamorphosis, so the adult form has the external gills (purple) of the larva and remains underwater rather than emerging onto land. The axolotl also has a caudal fin running from its head to its tail. It is a predator, feeding on worms, insects, and small fish. Axolotls are found in and around Mexico City, Mexico. Because of their characteristics, they are used extensively in biological research

Mushroom gills, SEM Featured Print

Mushroom gills, SEM

Mushroom gills. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the gills of an unidentified gilled mushroom. The mushroom is the fruiting body of a fungus. It is grown to distribute the spores by which a fungus reproduces. There are many ways that a mushroom can do this, and a common way is for the mushroom to develop a cap with these gills (rippling folds of tissue) on the underside. When the spores have matured, they drop from the gills and fall to the ground or are carried on the wind to start a new fungal body. Magnification: x10 at 6x7cm size
