Hazel pollen grains Featured 10 Oct 2000 Image

Hazel pollen grains

Hazel pollen grains. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of pollen grains from the Hazel tree, Corylus avellana. These microspores are shed from male catkins (hanging pollen-bearing structures) on the Hazel tree, released into the air and carried by wind to pollinate the female flowers. Pollen grain shape, size and surface sculpturing varies greatly between species, and may be used by botanists to identify plants from pollen grains. Large quantities of Hazel pollen occur as a fine yellow mist at springtime in parts of Europe, and may contribute to attacks of hay fever (allergic rhinitis). Magnification: x1, 730 at 5x7cm size

Lemon balm oil gland

Lemon balm oil glands. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the surface of a leaf of Lemon Balm, Melissa officinalis, showing oil glands. On the leaf surface are two types of hairs, called trichomes. Many multicellular hairs serve a protective function for the plant, or reduce evaporation from the leaf. The spherical structures are modified glandular hairs which secrete oils associated with the odour of Lemon balm. Lemon balm is both a herbal and medicinal plant used in perfumes, as a sedative and to treat headache and toothache. Magnification: x585 at 5x7cm size
