Caption: Lily pollen grains on a chip. Scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a pollen grain from a lily (Lilium sp.) plant on a digital camera chip. Pollen grains are reproductive structures produced by the male parts of flowering plants. These grains have a spiked outer wall (exine), which may assist in their dispersal by improving their adherence to pollinating insects.
