Questions about Diatom Shop Strew Slides

#1 Post by Mr Galasphere » Mon Jul 04, 2022 12:50 am

I'm thinking about purchasing a Strew Slide or two from the Diatom Shop.

I have a few questions I hope members here can help me with:

1. How many specimens are likely to be on a slide?
2. How many species are likely to be represented?
3. They offer slides from several locations. I can't afford them all, any recommendations?

I realize specimen numbers and species will vary from slide to slide and sampling location. I am just trying to get an idea of what to expect.

Thanks!

I have a few strews from them. Each image is about 4x3mm
