Microscopic image from a natural hypersaline brine (

Microscopic image from a natural hypersaline brine (salinity > 200 g l−1). Based on distinctive morphologies the following can be identified: the eukaryotic green alga Dunaliella salina living alongside the haloarchaeon Haloquadratum walsbyi (flat square with gas vesicles; numerous cells are dividing like a sheet of postage stamps). A rod-shaped microbe can also be seen, © Mike Dyall-Smith. (For more details see: McGenity TJ & Oren A (2012) Hypersaline environments.
