Caption: Light micrograph in interference contrast illumination of a trichome on a leaf of a tomato plant (Lycopersicon esculentum). Trichomes are outgrowths from the leaf epidermis. Many trichomes have definite functions, such as providing defences against pests or in assisting in seed dispersal. In the tomato plant, such trichomes are thought to be an attempt to defend against various aphids which carry virus infections. Magnification x200 at 35mm size.
