Diatoms are single-celled algae encased in a silica cell wall. These algae have major roles in our ecosystem and a great bioindicators of water quality. Raman microscopy can be used to 3D these intricate cell walls, find out more in June’s Map of the Month.
Pollen analysis by Raman microscopy allows for species determination and nutrient levels can be assessed, important for determining if bees are getting the diet they need. Pollens studies provide insight into pollinator biodiversity and plant-pollinator interactions which in turn allows researchers to gain information about cultivated crops in the area. This quick read blog post reveals some Raman mapping data
