A novel method of estimating the cell volume of non-testate, free-living amoebae is presented. Measurements of the length (L) of motile forms of some amoebae, obtained by applying some basic rules, can be used to calculate diameter (D) using a relatively simple formula, derived from regression analysis (N=39): D=0.6L. Important physiological and ecological variables, including carbon content and respiratory rate, can then be easily calculated using this estimated cell volume.
