I was honored to be asked to create the image that would eventually grace the cover of the inaugural issue of the journal mBIO launched in April 2010. ASMJournals charged me with the task to produce an image that would show the diversity of all microbial life that support, influence, and affect our biosphere. The image is separated into and depicts the four distinct microbial groups–archaea, bacteria, fungi, and protists. The image was done entirely in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop.

I thank Patrick Lane for a truly superb job on rendering the stereology problem in a very compact illustration. I have approved the final version 3 that has come in 3 hours ago.
