Amoebae in a swimming pool - album

Sterile microscopic slides were placed on the bottom in the
deepest part (3.5 meters) of a swimming pool treated with chlorine.
One week later slides were carefully taken out and (still wet)
fixed in sublimate alcohol. The community of microorganisms
attached in the biological film consisted mainly of bacteria,
amoebae, flagellates, infusorians, yeasts and microscopic
forms of worms. Cytological diversity of amoebae is documented
in this album. Slides were stained by Massonīs trichrome
or Giemsa. Sizes of amoebae ranged from <5 microns
to >100 microns, detailed species determination was impossible.
