I: these are nematodes

or c. elegans, a model organism used for genetics and molecular bio research. these pictures were taken by holding my camera up to a microscope viewpiece, so they're actually about .5mm long.

    I am writing a picture book on SOIL in which micro-organisms play a critical role. I wish permission to use this picture. Of course I will credit the photo and will send a copy of the published book too. I have written a similar booK titled EARTHSCAPES. The format is evident on www.rockpub.com. I will be pleased to send you a copy of that book if you wish. Jerry Wermund wermundj@mail.utexas.edu

    I would like to use this photo in a presentation I'm giving for my dissertation defense. It'd be in a collage of photos of organisms for which we have the complete genome sequenced. May I use your photo? I will credit you in my presentation.
