Red-sided garter snakes

Red-sided garter snakes (Thamnophis sirtalis parietalis) in spring, emerging from hibernation. These snakes are in Manitoba, Canada. The snakes hibernate in underground dens formed by erosion of the limestone rock seen here. The underground dens are below the frost line, enabling them to survive the harsh Canadian winter. The snakes mate after emerging from hibernation. The red-sided garter snake inhabits moist woodlands and grasslands in northern North America. It feeds on tadpoles, frogs, leeches, earthworms and rodents, and it can reach a length of over one metre. The bite is not venomous, but can be painful. Photographed in May 2003

TEM of a chloroplast from a pea plant

False colour transmisson electron micrograph of a chloroplast in the leaf of a pea plant Pisum sativum. The chloroplast is the site of photosyn- thesis; a process by which plants obtain carbohyd- rates from carbon dioxide, using the energy from sunlight.The contents of the chloroplast are bound together by a double membrane.Internally, chlorop- lasts consists of stacks of flattened membranes called grana (black thread-like) suspended in a matrix of hydrophilic proteins. The grana contain the chlorophyll pigments & are the sites of light reactions during photosynthesis. The large white oval is a starch body, a photosynthesis product.
