Caption: Xylem plant cells. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a longitudinal section through a bundle of tracheid cells from a softwood toothpick. Tracheid cells transport water and mineral nutrients from the roots throughout the plant. The thick lignin cell walls also provide structural support for the stem. Magnification: x60 when printed at 10 centimetres wide.
