  • English: Pollen from a variety of common plants: sunflower (Helianthus annuus, small spiky sphericals, colorized pink), morning glory (Ipomoea purpurea, big sphericals with hexagonal cavities, colorized mint green), hollyhock (Sildalcea malviflora, big spiky sphericals, colorized yellow), lily (Lilium auratum, bean shaped, colorized dark green), primrose (Oenothera fruticosa, tripod shaped, colorized red) and castor bean (Ricinus communis, small smooth sphericals, colorized light green). The image is magnified some x500, so the bean shaped grain in the bottom left corner is about 50 μm long.
  • Deutsch: Pollen verschiedener Pflanzen unter dem Mikroskop: Sonnenblume (Helianthus annuus), Purpur-Prunkwinde Ipomoea purpurea, Stockrose (Sildalcea malviflora), Lilie (Lilium auratum), Primrose (Oenothera fruticosa) und Wunderbaum (Ricinus communis). Das Bild wurde bei der Aufnahme mit dem Mikroskop 500-fach vergrößert, daher ist zum Beispiel das bohnenförmige Pollenkorn in der linken unteren Bildecke in der Realität etwa 50 μm lang.
  • Français : Pollens de quelques plantes courantes: Tournesol, Volubilis, Rose trémière (Sildalcea malviflora), lys (Lilium auratum), onagre (Oenothera fruticosa) et Ricin commun (Ricinus communis).
