Seeds of WA

I have been working lately with identifying and/or germinating some of the seeds from species that were present in my studies in Western Australia. Here are some pics of the seeds with all their different shapes and patterns! Sorry that my images are not very sharp; my photo-through-microscope skills are pretty terrible. NOTE: there is no relative scale; pics were cropped variously to maximise seed viewing.
