Caption: Intestinal villi. Coloured scanning micrograph (SEM) of villi (rounded folds) in the jejunum (part of the small intestine). Villi are finger-like projections in the intestines that increase the surface area available for the absorption of nutrients. Traces of mucus (purple) are seen between the villi (pink). Magnification: x90 when printed at 10 centimetres across.
