Caption: False colour scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the upper stigmatic surface of a daisy flower, Bellis sp. . The stigma forms the free end of the flower's female reproductive organ, the carpel. The stigma, the pollen-receiving structure, is connected to the ovaries at base of flower by a tubular style. Pollen grains caught on the stigmatic surface (2 are visible in centre of image), may germinate and release a pollen tube that growsdown or around the style and into the ovaries (which contain female gametes). Male gametes released from the pollen pass down the tube & into the ovaries, where fertilisation occurs . Mag: X34 at 35mm size.

Release details: Model release not required. Property release not required.
