Caption: Rosebay pollination. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the pistil (orange) and stamens (yellow) of a rosebay (Nerium oleander) flower. Numerous pollen grains (round) can be seen on the ripened, split, stamens (one seen from bottom left corner to centre left and lower centre). The stamen is the male reproductive organ and pollen grains contain the male gametes (sex cells) of a flowering plant. When they land on the pistil, the male gametes travel to the ovaries where they fertilise the female gamete (ovule). Rosebay is a poisonous evergreen shrub that is native to waterside habitats of the Mediterranean. Magnification: x100 at 6x7cm size.
