Caption: Rye pollen. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of pollen grains (blue) from a rye plant (Secale cereale). Pollen grains contain the male sex cells of a flowering plant. In the process of pollination, the pollen grains are transported from a flower's anthers to the female reproductive parts of a plant. This allows the female and male sex cells to combine in the formation of a seed. Rye is a cereal grass widely cultivated in Europe. It can be used with wheat to make rye bread. It is also used to make whisky and gin. Magnification: x1050 at 10 centimetres wide.
