Liverwort leaf. Polarised light micrograph of a section through a leaf from a liverwort plant, showing asexual propagules (gemmae, green). Liverworts do not produce flowers but instead reproduce asexually using gemmae. A gemma is a single cell, mass of cells, or modified bud of tissue, that detaches from the parent and develops into a new individual. Magnification: x200 when printed 10 centimetres wide.
