On the Cover: Floating Flora: Diverse phytoplankton from a vertical net haul taken in Massachusetts Bay, February 6, 1990. The intersecting "airport-runways" in the upper part of the photomicrograph are Stephanopyxis nipponica, the "bracelet chain" of cells at the center are Thalassiothrix longissima, and the sphere at the bottom is Coscinodiscus sp. Chaetoceros decipiens is the genus and species of the multispined rectangles of cells. All of these are diatoms. The Coscinodiscus has a diameter of approximately 20 µm—about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. The small bright spots throughout are cyanobacteria with a diameter of ~1 µm. Photo taken on a Zeiss microscope using bright-field phase contrast. (Photo courtesy of E. Haugen and L, Shapiro, Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences and University of Oregon.) See p. 47.
