Microbiological Garden - Welcome
(Ususally there will not be so much text as on this
A virtual microbiological garden
Almost everybody has visited a zoological or a botanical garden and
was fascinated by exotic animals and wonderful plants.
Microorganisms, however, are not normally noticed, although we
are surrounded by billions of them. Their world is
fascinating, too, if your are able to watch it. The Microbiological
Garden has the purpose to give some insight into the microbial world,
not systematically and complete, but by means of little stories and
pictures of microbes, their life and their environments. An internet-
garden seems appropriate for microbes, as we need technical means
to make them visible. You can enter the different stories by
one of the pictures at the start window.
microbiological-garden.net is a non-commercial project
hosted by the Institute for Chemistry and Biology of the Marine
Environment (ICBM) at the University of Oldenburg in
Germany. Please ask us, if you want to use contents or pictures from
the garden. If you have pictures that would be suited for a little
story, please contact us, too. Publication will include the names of
the photographer. We would appreciate if you could include a link to
microbiological-garden.net on your internet pages.
