One of the ten finalists in the 2012 New Scientist Eureka Prize for Science Photography. This image, 'Another Day in the Life of Arabidopsis', shows a small, six-day-old seedling of Arabidopsis thaliana under a scanning electron microscope and captures the essence of seed germination, the tiny and delicate beginnings of a plant. The image has been artificially coloured to resemble the natural colours of the living seedling. Photo: Mark Talbot
