Spores are a lovely sight under the compound light microscope. They are even more fascinating under scanning electron microscope!
The outer ornamentation, shape and size of the spores help to determine the overall description of the species and in some cases determines the name.
Looking at your roots under the microscope on a bi-annual basis is used to determine contaminant species that might be living in your orchard.
Make sure to check your roots often in order to properly maintain your soils when it comes time for spring cleaning.
