This is the second in a series of articles on Iowa diatoms. The first article appeared in the Dec. 1978 issue of the Iowa Science Teachers Journal and dealt with the collection of diatoms in the field. After collecting diatoms in the field and labeling the collection jars properly, you must now prepare the diatoms for study in the laboratory. This article outlines the basic techniques for preparing diatoms for laboratory study.
