Caption: Flower of Lady's Mantle. Coloured scanning electron micrograph of the centre of a flower of a Lady's Mantle (Alchemilla vulgaris). In this image, the four pollen-producing anthers are seen as pale green swellings on darker green stalks, called stamens. In the centre is the round green stigma which receives pollen (containing male gametes). It is supported by a short stalk, the style, which leads down to the carpel, containing ovules (female gametes), at its base. A.vulgaris is part of the rose family of perennial plants. The flowers, typically 4mm in diameter & without petals, are found in loose clusters at the top of the plant. Magnification: x110 at 5x7cm size.
