Caption: Disc floret, coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM). This floret (true flower) is found in the central (disc) region of the flower head of a compound flower. Attached are pollen grains (yellow), each containing a male gamete (reproductive cell) that is intended to fertilise an egg or ovule (female gamete). This will initiate the formation of a seed for a new plant.
