Caption: Christmas rose leaf. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a section through the leaf of the Christmas rose (Helleborus niger). In the body of the leaf (centre) are numerous cells containing chloroplasts (green). These are small organelles which are the site of photosynthesis within the leaf. Photosynthesis is the process by which plants use sunlight to turn carbon dioxide into sugars. Magnification: x750 at 4x5 inch size.
