Caption: Yew berries (Taxus baccata) on the ground. These are the seed cones of the yew tree. The seed cone consists of a fleshy red berry-like sheath (aril) surrounding a single seed. The aril is the only non-poisonous part of the plant. The rest contains taxine, a deadly poisonous alkaloid. Birds are able to consume the aril and pass out the seed undigested.
