A unique photography exhibit featuring both the above-ground and below-ground beauty and diversity of our Nebraska prairies and plains. The variety, strangeness and beauty of nematodes - microscopic worms present in all habitats on the planet - are featured large-scale archival prints of nematodes and their prairie landscape habitats.

Nematodes are the most abundant multicellular animal on earth, found on every continent, marine and freshwater environments and as plant and animal parasites. Most are microscopic. This exhibit is based on the work of the Nematology Laboratory in UNL’s Department of Plant Pathology and represents some of the most intriguing high-resolution light and scanning electron microscope images taken over the past 30 years.

Viewers will learn more about research into some of the 5 million species of nematodes and their impact on plants and animal life.

Views include Lincoln’s Pioneers Park, the Lancaster County Prairie Corridor, Nine-Mile Prairie, Spring Creek Audubon Center near Denton, Wachiska Audubon’s Tim Knott Prairie by Omaha, Willa Cather Prairie in Red Cloud, the Switzer Ranch, Crescent Lake National Wildlife Refuge and the Alkaline Lakes in the western Nebraska Sandhills.

Dr. Tom Powers, Becky Higgins, Kris Powers, Dr. Peter Mullin, Ethan Freese & Tracy Tucker are among those contributing to the exhibition.
