Hazel pollen grains

Hazel pollen grains. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of pollen grains from the Hazel tree, Corylus avellana. These microspores are shed from male catkins (hanging pollen-bearing structures) on the Hazel tree, released into the air and carried by wind to pollinate the female flowers. Pollen grain shape, size and surface sculpturing varies greatly between species, and may be used by botanists to identify plants from pollen grains. Large quantities of Hazel pollen occur as a fine yellow mist at springtime in parts of Europe, and may contribute to attacks of hay fever (allergic rhinitis). Magnification: x1, 730 at 5x7cm size

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases the intricate beauty of Hazel pollen grains. Under the lens of a scanning electron microscope, these microspores from the Corylus avellana tree reveal their vibrant orange hue and unique surface sculpturing. The male catkins on the Hazel tree release these pollen grains into the air, where they are carried by wind to pollinate female flowers. Botanists find great value in studying pollen grain characteristics as they vary significantly between plant species. The shape, size, and surface features can be used as identifying markers for different plants. In this case, hazel pollen is known to occur abundantly in parts of Europe during springtime, creating a fine yellow mist that fills the air. However, while this natural phenomenon may seem enchanting to some, it can also pose challenges for individuals with hay fever or allergic rhinitis. The large quantities of Hazel pollen released during this time contribute to allergy attacks experienced by many people. With its scientific significance and aesthetic appeal, this print serves as a reminder of nature's intricate reproductive processes and how even something as small as a pollen grain can have significant impacts on both ecosystems and human health.
