Caption: Moss spore capsule, light micrograph. Longitudinal section through a spore capsule from a cord moss (Polytrichum commune). The capsules consists of an external cover, a base where photosynthetic tissue makes food for the developing spores, and an inner capsule (upper centre) where the spores form. The inner capsule has a lid that breaks down to release the spores. Magnification: x14 when printed at 10 centimetres high.
