Seed pod with seeds (thale cress; Arabidopsis thaliana), coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM). When the dry seed pod is disturbed, it explodes. Arabidopsis is indigenous to Europe and is a N.W. American weed used in many botanical genetic studies due to its short life cycle. Arabidopsis thaliana has gained interest from the scientific community as a model organism for research on numerous aspects of plant biology. Magnification: x28 when shortest axis printed at 25 millimetres.
