Caption: Light micrograph (Oblique Spectral Rheinberg contrast) of true cells from Sphagnum moss, Sphagnum sp. The cells appear as elongated oblongs, containing chloroplasts (circular dark green bodies), the sites of photosynthesis within the cell. Also visible are the ribbed pockets that link the rows of oblong cells; these retain water and give the plant its sponge-like properties. Because of its water holding capacity, sphagnum is used as a packing material for the transportation of other cultivated plants. Magnification: X 400 at 35mm size.
