    What do TEM, SEM & confocal mean?


    Thez nailed SEM and TEM on the head. Confocal just refers to the entire image being in focus. It takes multiple shots and overlays all of the 'in focus' shots over one another to produce an entire image in focus. All this done using wavelengths to excite and picking up the emissions. Otherwise known as phosphorescence.

    Hey what do you do for a job? Sounds interesting - I was in physics for too many years is why I know what SEM/TEM/AFM are

    For sure! Are you in some bio or something? It's really awesome that you get access to that sort of equipment and can use it for looking at VFTs and such because I don't think anyone is really researching these plants too much scientifically. I'm sure with those pics you've doubled the amount of knowledge we have

    Ya I'm working on my Master's degree in Bio. If I had the time I'd really like to do some SEM work with the same subjects in mind but this will have to do for now : /
    I've found a few neat shots out there in the CP category but nothing confocal, this definitely has a 'pazzas' to it with the bright colors!

    But like I said any idea as to what I should use as future subjects are welcome. Otherwise I'll stick to the sundew glands and maybe Nepenthes pitcher glands.

    Truly FANTASTIC photos!
    I'd be interested in seeing the first cells of a sprout on a cutting of a VFT or dew perhaps.
    Or some root pics where Trichoderma was used on a plant to examine any symbiosis happening....
    Pica of the inner walls along a Nep or Sarr pitcher, to examine the differences or any "zones", where the plant absorbs nutrients compared to other "waxy" areas, etc.

    Oh heck, more pics of any kind would be interesting!

    Great job Yann!
    Experience is the best teacher. At least it used to be.
    But then, common sense isn't so common anymore, is it.
