General Principles of Cell Fine Structure

  • O. Roger Anderson


The remarkable range in morphology and magnitude of size among microbial organisms, varying from viruses (ca 20 nm) to large free-living protozoa (ca 2 mm), spans nearly five orders of magnitude (105). Some basic knowledge of cellular microstructure pertinent to further discussions of protozoan microanatomy and physiology is presented. A more thorough treatment of the subject can be found in standard textbooks of cell biology or cellular ultrastructure.
