Rastereletronenmikroskopische Aufnahme Hornmilbe - Ausstellung Gigantischklein Plakat


Scanning electron micrographs of animals from the scientific work of the museum.

This traveling exhibition of the Senckenberg Museum für Naturkunde Görlitz provides insights into the tiny living world of soil animals. The shape and body details of mites, brush-footed animals, moss scorpions and many other soil animals, most of which are invisible to the naked eye, become visible through scanning electron micrographs magnified up to 200,000 times.

The natural history museum’s soil zoologists have selected particularly interesting animals to make visible the diversity and peculiarities of soil animals and to point out the important functions of most soil animals in the soil ecosystem.
