Caption: Sterile Chinese rose flower (Rosa moyesii) showing that the male anthers (brown) are not producing pollen but have opened as empty sacs. At centre is the female stigma. This male sterility is a useful trait to have in plant breeding programmes since any seeds produced by a male-sterile plant must be a result of cross pollination.

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