Caption: Dwarf fireweed flower (Epilobium latifolium), close-up. The male parts of the flower, the stamens, consist of pollen-bearing anthers (red) supported on long filaments. The stamens surround the female part of the flower, the carpel (pink, centre). This is composed of a lobed stigma supported on a curved style, beneath which is the ovary (not seen). Pollen grains containing the male sex cells land on the stigma and the male cells migrate down the style into the ovary. Here they may fertilize the female sex cells (ovules), and the carpel may ripen to form a fruit containing seeds. Photographed on Clavering Island in North East Greenland National Park, Greenland.
