Caption: Flower bract surface. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) showing papillae (projections) on the surface of a flower bract. A bract is similar to a petal. It is a modified leaf-like structure associated with a flower. The papillae help to reduce water loss from the bract. This is a bract from a chameleon plant (Houttuynia cordata).
