Scientific Name Jakobida
Comments Some jakobids, as they appear by light microscopy. Note that the cells are drawn in different orientations - Jakoba libera is shown with the ventral side (defined by the groove) on the left. Andalucia incarcerata is shown in ventral view (looking into the ventral groove). In Reclinomonas americana the groove opens upwards (the cell 'reclines' on its dorsal side). Histiona aroides is shown roughly in ventral view. Jakoba libera is drawn in feeding position, in which the hooked portion of the anterior flagellum would adhere to the substrate. Note the loricae of Reclinomonas and Histiona, by which they attach more permanently to the substrate.

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?
