Sporangiophores of Pilobolus fungus on dung Featured 11 Sep 2003 Print

Sporangiophores of Pilobolus fungus on dung

Fungus sporangiophores. Macrophotograph of three sporangiophores of a Pilobolus sp. fungus, growing on dung. A sporangiophore is a fruiting body formed on a specialised hypha, at the end of which is a sporangium (brown). The sporangium is a sac- like container for fungal spores. When the spores are mature, the sporangium breaks, releasing the spores. The term Pilobolus means hat-thrower", referring to this spore discharge. This fungus typically grows on horse manure. Magnification: x100 at 6x4.5cm size."

Illustration of a ventricular hole in the heart

Illustration of a ventricular hole in the heart. This hole in the septum between the two ventricles is a heart abnormality developed before birth (congenital). Below centre, the hole can be seen between column-like papillary muscles and tendons (upper centre) of a heart valve. The outer cardiac muscle is at lower right. This defect in the sep- tum that separates the ventricles causes blood to mix. Deoxygenated blood meant for the lungs may go to the body, while oxygenated blood may go back to the lungs. This is called "shunting". Such heart defects are diagnosed on an x-ray, ECG, or echo cardiogram. It is usually a treatable defect resulting from errors of development in the fetus
