Caption: False colour scanning electron micrograph of lavender oil glands on the surface of a sepal of the flower of Lavendula officianilis, the lavender plant. The spherical glands are found among the branched hairs covering the sepal. Lavender grows wild in the Mediterranean region, but improved strains of oil bearing plants are farmed in other parts of the world, including Tasmania & Norfolk, UK. The oil is obtained from the flowering shoots, extracted by steam distillation. Magnification : X 71 at 35mm size. Original is BW print b765/088.
