Caption: Gladiolus flower anther. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a gladiolus flower (Gladiolus sp.) anther. Anthers are part of a plant's male reproductive system. They produce the male gametes (sex cells), pollen grains. The ribbed structure seen here splits open to release the pollen. The pollen grains fertilise ovaries, the female gametes. Magnification: x570 when printed at 10 centimetres tall.
