It is not widely understood that the slime found in streams is home to complex communities of micro-organisms, with important ecological functions.

This educational poster provides a colourful and richly detailed view of the microscopic world of stream slime, or biofilms. It illustrates the diverse micro-organisms which constitute a stream biofilm, from the tiniest viruses and bacteria to the much larger (but still very small) algae, protozoa and rotifers and explains their ecological roles and interactions in stream ecosystems.

This poster was awarded an Honourable Mention in the 2008 International Science and Engineering Visualization Challenge, organised by Science Journal and the National Science Foundation (USA).

Please contact us if you are interested in obtaining copies of the poster.

Research posters:

We have produced many posters which explain our research, presented at various conferences and meetings. The most recent ones are shown below. If you want to see older ones go to the archives or make an enquiry (streambiofilm@gmail.com).
