Working as teacher for biology and chemistry at a highschool which is located in the southern part of the Ruhr-district in Germany, I wanted to document the ecological situation of the environment in the surroundings of our school, thereby creating an online catalogue of the species occuring there. The focus is on the microscopical life in aquatic freshwater environments, i.e. a small pond that has been surveyed for more than 10 years before it was replaced by a new pond. A nearby brook complements the biodiversity with species typical for lotic waters. So I now decided to present some of these microinvertebrates and protists here. Meanwhile critters from all over the world are being photographed.

From diving excursions to the mediterranean sea and from private tours to marine tropical environments images of marine species will be presented here as well.
