Caption: Field pennycress flowers. Coloured SEM (scanning electron micrograph) of the developing flowers of the field pennycress (Thlaspi arvense). The flowers house the male reproductive organs (stamens), which are each topped by a pollen sac (anther, one at centre left, brown). The flowers also contain the female reproductive organ (lower centre, carpel). Pennycress is considered an agricultural weed that grows on waste ground and headlands throughout Europe, USA, eastern Asia & northern Africa. It is also known as the stinkweed due to its unpleasant smell. It may be used as a salad leaf, but can be poisonous to livestock. Magnification: x12 at 6x7cm size.
