About this book

The book is written as a first person narrative in the form of a journal. It comprises four chapters Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter and the entries within each season describe the author's sample-collecting forays to local freshwater environments during one year. Microscopic organisms encountered in the slides derived from the samples are discussed and illustrated. The major protist groups are all covered, as well as a few metazoans and bacteria. The author's purpose is to show the reader what wonderful life forms are present microscopically in freshwater environments all around us, and to demonstrate that viewing and photographing them does not require sophisticated means. She also tries to explain why micro-communities are important and should be conserved.
