The image depicts epidermal cells in which plant organelles are coloured by a fluorescent marker in a way that the plastids of a non-stressed (left) and a stressed (right) tobacco plant (Nicotiana benthamiana) glow in green. In the stressed plant the extensions, called stromules, are visible. Image: Dr. Jessica Lee Erickson
