Caption: Nettle gland hairs. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of gland hairs on a stinging nettle (Urtica dioica). These gland hairs help maintain the health of the plant's epidermis but have no stinging function. Stinging nettles are known for their long poisonous hairs (not seen) which cause pain and inflammation when touched, giving them protection against herbivores. Magnification: x600 at 6x7cm size.
