December 2016 articles written by students for
the 'Principles and Applications of Photomacrography' course
offered in the
Biomedical Photographic Communications (BPC) program 2016
at the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), NY State, USA.

Micscape Acknowledgements: Many thanks to all the students over the years for sharing their enthusiasm and skills on such a wonderful variety of topics. Writing an article for Micscape initially formed part of their course as an assignment, which was a neat idea originally proposed by Ted Kinsman the course instructor in 2004 and repeated in most following years. Thanks to Ted for all the work behind the scenes to make this happen. Also thanks to Michael Peres, the dept. head (and course instructor 2009) for his introduction and for maintaining the department's generous collaboration over the years.
