Caption: Light micrograph (Nomarski interference) of starch grains or amyloplasts in the cells of a developing cotyledon (seed leaf), of the Jack bean Canavalia ensiformis. Bean cotyledons are storage organs containing reserves of starch, from which the germinating seed draws nourishment. The starch grains are stored in specialised plastids (cellular organelles) called amyloplasts (distinctive light ovals clustering inside the cell wall). The large, flat structures within the cell cytoplasm are vacuoles, a predominant feature of developing cotyledons. Mag: X 80 (35mm).
