Images of coleoptiles
and the growth patterns shown under light and hormone treatment,
from the collection of Prof M.B. Wilkins. 

Please see the Collection Page for a fuller explanation.

To see all of the images easily, click on the first, and page through using the left/right arrows. 

Both original slides and full-size scanned images are available. The initial scan was done very quickly, but slides can easily be rescanned to straighten images where needed. The images displayed are cut down to a small size to avoid copyright infringement.

My scanner struggled with this particular set of images because the black backgrounds made it very difficult for it to figure out which area of the slide to scan. Where these slides in particular are needed I will go back and rescan where required.
