This cool tool for visualizing cell size and scale was posted on the blog for my other class this quarter (Disease Ecology). It's from the University of Utah and I just realized it's rather applicable here too. It's a nice way of visualizing size and is well worth the 2 minutes or so it takes to play around with it. Look at the footnotes to learn a couple of interesting facts.
