Caption: Cotton plant root. Light micrograph of a transverse section through a root of the cotton plant (Gossypium hirsutum). This photo is the centre of the root, which consists of xylem. In the centre of the xylem is the primary metaxylem and protoxylem made up of star-shaped arms. This central vascular cylinder acts like a cable to resist winds that could uproot the plant. Magnification: x14 when printed at 10 centimetres wide.
