What you can see

The pollens on this website have been prepared by collecting the flowers of the plants just before anthesis. These flowers have been classified by dichotomous key. The pollens have been photographed in their natural state, without having undergone any treatment. High-resolution photographs were taken using an optical microscope with immersion oil (100x objective).
