Diatoms drawn on transparent dominoes, set in active spiral. Diatoms are photosynthesizing algae found in almost every aquatic environment, and they are responsible for one-fifth of photosynthesis on Earth; they are the base of the marine food web, and help to shape the carbon cycle. Their complex relationships with other microbes, including marine bacteria, shape huge relationships that determine the health of a staggering number of diverse species.
