In this post, we share our observations on pollen diversity among plants. The sample preparation was kept simple, where pollen were collected directly from flower using a cellophane tape and, the tape was then pasted on the glass slide for observation in foldscope. Photographs were captured at 1x and 4x zoom using the mobile camera.
For the measurement of pollen size, photographs of micrometer slide (1 division= 0.01 mm) were captured at 1x and 4x zoom levels. The scale was set up in ImageJ software and the size of the pollen was measured using the captured images.
