Our Tiny Neighbors

Sally collects samples from a pond.

Hi, my name is Sally Warring. I am a microbiologist at the American Museum of Natural History. I study microbes, organisms that are too small to be seen without a microscope. They live in the air, soil, and water all around us. Some even live in our own bodies!

In these videos, I’ll introduce you to our tiny neighbors. And we’ll explore how these microscopic organisms act as architects, builders, travelers, parasites, hunters, scavengers, and prey.
