Coloured illustration of sectioned brain in head

Brain. Computer-coloured illustration of a human head in side view, sectioned to show the brain and its blood vessels. The face is at right; cavities (pink) of the nose, mouth and pharynx are seen. Cerebral blood vessels (at top) branch within the cerebrum (yellow) of the brain. The large cerebrum of the brain is responsible for memory, conscious thought and voluntary movement. The cerebellum is a tree-shaped structure (blue/pink) at ear level. At the top of the yellow spinal cord is a swelling that forms the brainstem responsible for primitive reflexes. Illustration by the Italian anatomist Paolo Mascagni (1755-1815), author of the famous treatise: "Vasorum Lymphaticorum Corporis Humani"

Round-leaved sundew, Drosera Featured January Print

Round-leaved sundew, Drosera

Sundew. Round-leaved sundew plants, Drosera rotundifolia. The leaves have long stalks and circular blades. Each leaf grows tentacles capped by glands which produce a sticky droplet. These droplets attract insects which then become stuck to them. The insect's struggles stimulate the tentacles, which slowly bend over, further entangling it. Enzymes are then secreted which digest the soft body parts of the victim. The sundew has evolved this predatory mechanism to counter the mineral-deficiency in the soils of its natural habitat (uplands and bogs). Nitrogen in particular is obtained from the insect. Photographed on Queen Charlotte Island, Canada
