Along with nearly each post I publish there is an illustration of a micro-organism doing the activity the post is about. This page will be the collected illustrations. The illustrator is Mark W. Slater. Find him and his awesome work at: http://naturallinestudio.com/
I have nicknamed the main character Baldwin the Bug. The meaning of Baldwin is "brave, friend, protector" which though very anthropomorphic is rather appropriate. As the blog continues I hope to give Baldwin some friends.
December 2012 - Bacteria and the Environment. Baldwin and all his identical friends are hanging out in the petridish, having a go at eating some delicious biodegradable plastic.
Here is Baldwin with his identical friends, chewing their way, rather slowly through biodegradeable plastic from January 2013 - Microbial degradation of plastics.
