Comments This scanning electron micrograph depicts a grouping of Gram-negative ”Flexispira rappini” bacteria, magnified 13,951x. Its name ”F. rappini” is considered provisional, for it was never formally proposed or accepted. Subsequently determined to be closely related to Helicobacter spp., it is referred to as Helicobacter sp. flexispira in the literature.

Tree of Life Media Use Survey

The information you provide in this survey will help us improve the ToL media collection. We are trying to find out what kinds of people are using our images, movies, sounds, etc., what they are using them for, and what we could do to make the collection more useful to them.

How do you use this image? If you are a teacher/professor/librarian: At what level do you teach/learn? How old are you? Where in the world do you live/learn/teach? Do you have any suggestion on how we could improve the Tree of Life media collection?
