Germinating spores
Nikolai Adamski

This scanning electron microscopy (SEM) image shows two fungal spores germinating on a wheat leaf. Scientists from the John Innes Centre on the Norwich Research Park collected leaves of several wheat (Triticum aestivum) varieties from the field to investigate the structure and types of surface waxes; these spores were observed on wheat variety ‘Shango’.
