“I think that the X-ray images of the ash fruits captured my imagination. Not only is there a great deal of useful scientific information, for instance, the insect larvae eating paths through the food reserves but there is a particular elegance to the winged fruits. And I guess that prompted the idea of seed X-ray images as art.”

About the seed art
Forest Research’s graphic designer, Anna Duckett, has created a unique collection of artistic images based on our sophisticated X-ray technology which is used in the course of scientific research regarding woodland establishment from seeds.
Images are available to order as high quality prints in a range of formats, including postcards, posters, canvases and framed prints.
A scientific explanation of the seed used within the image is included for each piece, providing the chance to learn about seed biology whilst enjoying the creativity of the image and of science generally.
