Caption: Chickweed flower pistil and pollen. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a chickweed flower (Stellaria media) pistil (yellow) and pollen grains (green). Pistils hold a plant's female reproductive structures. They contain one or more carpels, which, in turn, contain a stigma, style and an ovary. Within the ovaries are the ovules, the female gametes (sex cells). The ovaries are fertilised by pollen grains, the male gametes. Magnification: x500 when printed at 10 centimetres across.
