Caption: Scanning electron micrograph of pollen from the pea plant, Pisum sativum. The pollen is elongated with three furrows, each contaning a germinating pore at mid region (visible as irregularity in furrow). The pea is a self pollinating plant, which means that the pollen passes from the anther (male) to the stigma (female) of the same flower. If received, a pollen tube emerges from one of the germinating pores & grows down towards the ovaries. The tube conveys the male gametes (sperm) to the ovum (egg) whereupon they are released to fuse & fertilize the egg. Some pollen, particular- ly the wind borne grass & tree pollen, may cause hayfever. Mag: X 900 at 10x8cm, X130 at 35mm size.
