Caption: Starch grains. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of starch grains (green) in the parenchyma of a Clematis sp. plant. Starch is synthesised from sucrose, a sugar produced by the plant during photosynthesis, and used as a source of energy. It is stored as grains in structures called amyloplasts (yellow). Magnification: x800 when printed at 10 centimetres wide.
