... Rene, what concentration sulfuric acid do you add? And what makes it "needed"? Also, what does a "reasonably pure" sample mean? What constitutes impurecbp704
Hi Mo, There are members of this forum that have a much wider experience than I – Academics, Taxonomists, Skilled Amateurs, Teachers, even Professionaldstevegill
Sarah, after seeing this discussion becoming more technical with every message, I wonder if that's the right way to go for you. You can spend your lifervanwezel
Many of our members are interested in the taxonomy and evolution of the diatoms, while others have an interest in diatoms as esthetic objects. Others may have deeper interests in the ecology of diatoms. We see all of these interests as being fully compatible.
The purpose of the group is to facilitate: (a) communication among diatomists at all levels of expertise; (b) the sharing of images and data regarding diatoms; (c) the furtherance of education concerning diatoms; (d) discussion of diatom collecting techniques, and the cleaning and mounting of diatoms for observation with the light microscope; (e) assistance in identifying diatom specimens; and (f) other purposes that may arise as the group evolves. The group is moderated, the moderators being Dick Carter (United States), Rob Kimmich (United States), Leszek Wolnik (Ireland), and Raymond Hummelink (The Netherlands).
The image on our group homepage was made by Prof. Bill Dailey, and shows the diatom Kittonia elaborata (Grove & Sturt) Grove and Sturt. It is from the famous Late Eocene deposits of Oamaru, New Zealand.
