    Abstract

    Confocal fluorescence imaging of samples of biological soil crusts from an arid zone yields a three dimensional view of the distribution of cyanobacteria within the crusts. The permeation of the crusts by oil immersion enables a clear view of their interior. Results show clusters of coccoid and filamentous cells within the crusts.
