Caption: Light micrograph of a wilted tulip petal. In the cells of a fresh petal the cytoplasm (stained red) fills each of the cells, but as the petal begins to wilt, water is lost and the cytoplasm retracts into the centre of each cell, as seen here. Photo number B060/022 shows a fresh petal from the same flower. Magnification: x150 at 35mm size.
