A false-coloured acquisition using cryo-fracture scanning electron microscopy (cryoSEM) of Arabidopsis cotyledon tissue. By using fast-frozen samples, cryoSEM preserves natural tissue constraints, preventing sample distortion. The fracture has exposed the anticlinal cell walls (magenta) of the epidermal layer, and internal cellular layers (green).
