Diatom structure » Manaaki Whenua

Diatom structure. Diatoms are characterised by a unique feature: a cell wall composed of silica, which fits together in two halves like a box. The lid and base of the box are known as valves, which are connected by a girdle, and the whole structure is known as a frustule. This has the important consequence that a cell can appear quite different
