Caption: Scabious seed. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a seed from a scabious flower (Scabiosa sp.). A seed contains an embryo (a fertilised ovule from which a new plant can grow) and a supply of food. The food is used either while the embryo develops, or during germination. Seed shapes and textures vary widely, affecting how they are dispersed from their parent plant. Dispersal methods include being carried by the wind, or water or on animal coats, or being eaten and deposited in animal droppings. Scabious flowers, also called pincushion flowers, are rich in nectar, attracting large numbers of insects. They are native to Europe and Asia.
