Grain weevil

Grain weevil. Coloured scanning electron micrograph of the thorax and head of a grain weevil (Sitophilus granarius). This beetle infests and damages stored grain, using the mandibles at the end of its elongated snout, or rostrum, to cut through the shell of a wheat grain and gain access to the food within. Females lay their eggs inside wheat grains, in order that their larvae can have a food supply. It can be controlled using fumigants. Magnification: x42 when printed 10 centimetres wide

Woolly mammoth hair, SEM Featured 27 Oct 2004 Print

Woolly mammoth hair, SEM

Woolly mammoth hair. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a preserved woolly mammoth (Mammuthus primigenius) hair. The woolly mammoth was a member of the elephant family, with long curved tusks and a covering of long hair. The coat consisted of long dark guard cells over a fine underwool. The woolly mammoth lived throughout the northern plains. It became extinct around 10, 000 years ago at the end of the last ice age, probably due to a combination of climate change, human hunting and disease. Several well preserved carcasses have been found frozen in Siberia and North America
