Diatoms. What are they and how can I get rid of them? Diatoms are photosynthesising algae, they have a siliceous skeleton (frustule) and are found in almost every aquatic environment including fresh and marine waters, soils, in fact almost anywhere moist.
Diatoms are the most important group of eukaryotic phytoplankton, responsible for close to 40% of marine primary productivity .
Assume that the sample consists of a gathering like: - sediment from a pond or a coastal marine mudflat - scrapings from stones or piles - leaves of aquatic plants - harvest from a plankton net The sample will contain - apart from (hopefully) diatoms - mineral debris (sand, mud, silt) and organic matter ...

12-1 Exercise 12 Fossil Lab — Part 7: Diatoms, radiolaria, planktonic foraminifera DIATOMS: Diatoms are pigmented unicellular algae whose cell walls are silicified to form a shell or frustule that consists of two valves.
Note that motility in diatoms also invokes the cytoskeleton, which is involved both in morphogenesis of the microfluidics chamber (the"raphe"), and in its operation during motility 54'55.
