Caption: False colour scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the anther and style of a Carolina Jasmine flower. The tubular style is part of the carpel, the female reproductive organ, and connects the upper stigma (pollen-receiving structure) with the lower ovaries. Stigma & ovaries are not in view. The anther forms the free end of the stamen, and is the pollen-producing stucture. As the mature anther dries out, unequal stresses in its curved wall cause it to rupture (a process known as dehiscence) and release the pollen grains. Numerous pollen grains are visible inside the anther to right of the style. Magnification: X 8 at 35mm size. Original is bw print b765/049.
