Micscape: Microscopy for students and educators

Micscape is an informal monthly web magazine encouraging readers to explore the 'miniature world' around them both on a microscopic and macroscopic scale. It was first published in November 1995. All material published to date is accessible in the online Library. Dave Walker, Mol Smith, and a few other dedicated enthusiast microscopists provide this popular haunt for tens of thousands of people. They have created a place for many people around the world to share interest in life at the smallest level from people with the highest enthusiasm. Don't believe what they tell you about the rain forest being the lungs of the earth. The air we breathe, the environment we live in, are not created by behemoths but by the smallest of living forms. And thousands upon thousands of people, each small alone, breathe continued life into this enduring online enthusiast microscopy magazine.
