Caption: Liverwort spore elaters, light micrograph. Transverse section through the sporangium of a liverwort (Pellia epiphylla). This is the basal portion of the sporangium, a region of the sporangium also called the elateraphore. The spores (pink) are mixed up with elongated cells with spiral thickening (elaters). When the sporangium splits open these elaters twist around as they dry and flick out the spores, which are then carried away by air currents. Magnification: x100 when printed at 10 centimetres wide.
