A description of the images is available

These images were obtained using a  Philips 505 scanning electron microscope on 2% gluteraldehyde/1% paraformaldehyde fixed material treated with OsO4 and followed by HMDS. They were air dried and sputter-coated with 20 nm gold prior to imaging.
If you use them, you must credit Matt Springer and the FGSC.  They should not be used for commercial purposes.

They may not be repackaged, republished or incorporated in other electronic media presentations without written permission of the FGSC. They shall not be used for personal financial gain under any circumstances.

The images from the FGSC were generated by scanning cultures grown on Vogels minimal at room temperature (around 22- 25 C) with variable fluorescent lighting unless indicated otherwise.
Many of these images are high resolution.
