Caption: Ox-eye daisy pollen grain. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a pollen grain from the ox-eye daisy flower (Chrysanthemum leucanthemum or Leucanthemum vulgare). The grain has a spiked outer wall (exine), which may assist in its dispersal by improving its adherence to pollinating insects. The characteristic surface of pollen grains is used by botanists to recognise and classify plants. Each pollen grain contains a male gamete (reproductive cell) that is intended to fertilise an egg or ovule (female gamete), and initiate the formation of a seed for a new plant.
