Caption: Lily pollen grains. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of pollen grains from a lily (Lilium sp.) plant. The outer wall (exine) of the pollen is highly sculpted, which may assist in wind, water or insect dispersal. Each pollen grain contains one of the plant's male gametes. These fertilise the eggs, initiating the formation of seeds. Magnification unknown.
