Caption: Plant cell mitosis. Light micrograph of a root tip cells squash preparation from an onion (Allium sp.) showing cell division (mitosis). From left to right: the chromosomes condense and appear as long thread-like structures (prophase). They then align along the centre of the cell (metaphase). Each chromosome consists of two identical sister chromatids that separate and are pulled to opposite ends of the cell (anaphase). Nuclear membranes then form around the two daughter nuclei as the chromosomes de-condense (telophase). Magnification: x1000 when printed 10 centimetres wide.
