Caption: False-colour scanning electron mirograph to show the detailed structure of the surface of the corolla tube (fused or partly fused petals) from the flower of goosegrass or cleavers, Galium aparine. The cells are irregularly shaped and have a rough surface. The reasons for this are not known although it is possibly to make a safe landing stage for insects, or more probably, as these flowers are white and quite glistening, to increase the reflection of light. Magnification: x900 at 10x8 inch size, x129 at 35mm size.
