Caption: Scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of pollen germinating on the stigma of the turnip flower, Brassica campestris. Of the many pollen grains which have lodged amongst the finger-like projections of the stigma, two have germinated & produced pollen tubes (centre & top left). The pollen tube grows down inside the stigma, through the style (the column on which the stigma is supported) & enters the ovary at the base of the style; it protects & conveys two male gametes (sperm cells) to the female egg for fertilisation. Magnification: X 230 for 35mm size, X 460 for 6x7cm size.
