Caption: Timelapse footage of a French bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) germinating underground. This is an example of epigeal germination, where the stem (hypocotyl) bearing the first leaves (cotyledons) forms a hook shape, which pulls the leaves upwards to the surface before straightening. Cropped from 4288x2848 pixels. See clip K005 3640 for a version with aspect ratio 16:9.
