Each individual blade of grass consists of various tissues, each made of cells in their thousands. In these cells an as yet unknown number of reactions and interactions are constantly taking place. The cells contain different parts known as organelles, which can be thought of as the cellular equivalent of the organs in animals and plants.

This Catalyst article shows how various types of microscope allow scientists to see what is going on inside living plant cells.

This article is from Catalyst: Secondary Science Review 2013, Volume 23, Issue 4.

Catalyst is a science magazine for students aged 14-19 years. Annual subscriptions to print copies of the magazine can be purchased from Mindsets.
