Anabel’s garden has the most conspicuous eukaryotic diversity and abundance with many different types of biofilms. Site 1 is in the small pool just below where the water exits from the culvert under the road; on the wall above this pool are black and green filaments attached to the wall in the rushing water. Site 2 is in a small pool to the right of site 1; it appears to fill from water seeping under the roadway, and is covered with a thick mat of green algae. Site 3 is downstream of where the seep water from site 2 joins the main flow from site 1. Sequences of diatoms and ciliates have been obtained from rDNA diversity studies of biofilms here. image
