Fungal Spore Capsules on the Surface of a Giant Foxtail Seed
This image, captured in "wet" mode using the ESEM, shows an unidentified
fungus on the surface of a seed from Setaria faberii, a large grass, commonly
called Giant Foxtail. The seed was imaged in the ESEM chamber without a
conductive coating and at close to 100% relative humidity.
