Caption: Fern rhizome, polarised light micrograph. Longitudinal section through a rhizome of the bracken fern (Pteridium aquilinum). Embedded in the parenchyma tissue (blue) are, from left to right: a vascular cylinder (meristele, yellow), sclerenchyma tissue (red-brown), and a second vascular cylinder. The vascular cylinders have a central xylem strand (multi-coloured) and on either side of the xylem is the phloem, consisting of sieve tubes. Magnification: x100 when printed at 10 centimetres high.
