BELL Garden, with Matthew Traum of Engineer Inc., is working on a digital microscope for the Garden in collaboration with MouseCalls, which is donating a computer to the project. The microscope will allow us to image individual plant cells to identify and better mitigate plant illnesses, identify and differentiate between plant species, examine insects and other Garden flora and fauna, and carry out other practical and educational activities. To give a sense of one capability, we took the enclosed images of a lady bug at the Garden last year with a low-powered microscope.
