Artery tissue layers, fluorescent light micrograph. Fluorescent dyes have been used to highlight tissues and cellular structures: microvasculature (red), smooth muscle (green), cell nuclei (blue), intima (pink). The layers seen here are the tunica intima (right, pink, the internal layer), the tunica media (center, green, the middle layer) and the tunica adventitia (left, red, the outer layer).
Danté Fenolio, Ph.D., has devoted his life to bringing rarely seen creatures to light through his beautiful and eerie photography.
Danté Fenolio Caving in China
He's brought us images from habitats without light: caves, the bottom of the ocean, and the canopies of the rainforest. Not interested in the typical, but seeking out underappreciated and rarely seen creatures to highlight the need for conservation of the world's biodiversity. Danté Fenolio’s Photo Gallery
Science Source Images is proud to represent several exclusive photographs from his collection. Discover a Fangtooth from the Gulf of Mexico, a colony of Siphonophore, orange and red-colored Jellies, transparent Batfish, blind albino Salamanders. Creatures so unusual, they may not seem real, but they are part of the wonder of our planet.
Fenolio is not only a successful author, adventure photographer, but runs the Conservation and Research Department at the San Antonio Zoo. His many projects to save animals …
Through the power of social
media, the ALS "Ice Bucket Challenge" has brought massive attention to
an often times overlooked but devastating disease. But understanding
ALS and increasing its awareness can be just as invaluable as donations
towards finding a cure.
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
is often known as Lou Gehrig's Disease, and affects neurons which
control voluntary movements. This motor neuron disease causes nerve
cells in the brain and spinal cord to degenerate and lose their
connection to muscle fibers throughout the body. When muscles can no
longer be stimulated, they become progressively weaker and inactive,
eventually leading to muscular atrophy. Patients begin losing muscle
mass and coordination, the ability to walk or use their arms, and
as well as develop difficulty breathing, speaking, and swallowing.
ALS does not affect involuntary muscles (such as the heart or smooth
muscles), a person's senses (taste, touch, si…
