Caption: Wormwood, or absinth, herb. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a wormwood (Artemisia absinthium) leaf, showing surface hairs. This is a bitter herb which has medicinal uses. Preparations are used as a tonic, and can also remove intestinal worms. It also improves the appetite and aids digestion. The essential oil from this plant is used to flavour the alcoholic drink absinthe. Consuming too much of the oil can lead to hallucinations and convulsions. Magnification: x40 when printed 10 centimetres high.
