Torilis arvensis is commonly known as Spreading Hedge Parsley. The plants grow up to 3 feet in height with tiny flowers clustered in small flat-topped umbels. T. arvensis fruit (schizocarp) measure 4-6mm and usually hold 2-4 individual seeds (mericarps). The schizocarp is covered with velco-like appendages which attach to clothing and fur allowing them to hitch a ride to new terrain. This sample was air dried, mounted onto an aluminum stub and sputter coated with gold. It was viewed on a Philips XL30 TMP SEM at 20 kV in the EM Lab of the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at UCDavis. The image was colorized using Adobe PhotoShop Elements 2.0 software. The image shows one of the seeds within the schizocarp and affords a better appreciation for their cunning hitch-hiking techniques. Note the various velco-like appendages. The more "thorny" limbs (tan) are found on the schizocarp while the blunt appendages are part of the mericarp. Pollen (yellow) can be seen on the flower surfaces (pink).

Bacteria (one of them is a bacterium) are very small organisms. They are prokaryotic microorganisms. Bacterial cells do not have a nucleus, and most have no organelles with membranes round them. However, they do have DNA, and their biochemistry is basically the same as other living things.

Crystals of dyes adsorbed on the surface of a biopolymer after a process of water purification. One of the most common and undesirable contaminants in the wastewater are the dyes. They are highly visible, stable and difficult to biodegrade. For removal of such contaminants are commonly used adsorption techniques.

False-colored SEM image of the surface of a kidney stone. Urolithiasis is a common condition, with a prevalence of about 10%. Various types of urinary calculi have been described upon their mineral content and/or their morphology. The depicted stone is made of calcium phosphate crystals.
