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.
Those pictures are awesome, but the mitochondria is just breathtaking! Wow!
Thanks, I should have added the last picture (the TEM) was taken at a magnification of 35,000X. Will be attempting some 80,000X next week hopefully but obviously the pictures don't turn out as nice and crisp.
Good suggestion Paul. I'll post back here when and if those shots turn out.
Great stuff. Look forward to seeing more.
Re: Dionaea pollen:
Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.
There IS something I'd like to see.... The stalked glands of Mimulus gutatta, and the leaf surface.
You betchya you know what I'm looking for.
If you shake a rain stick, you get rain. I need a hamata stick.
Great links NaN, definitely more eye pleasing than mine lol Hopefully the next few shots will have significant techniques improvements
Sorry lilstinkpot, don't have any of those in my collection either. Stylidium debile flowers caught my eye this afternoon, I may check out the stigmas.
