Caption: Rock rose leaf hairs. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the leaf hairs of a rock, or sun, rose (Cistus longifolius). These trichomes guard the leaf against attack by pests, the gland- ular hairs (yellow) producing defensive chemicals, while the other hairs (grey) offer mechanical protection. Rock roses are evergreen shrubs from the Iberian Peninsula and around the Mediterranean Sea. Magnification: x125 at 6x6cm size. x200 at 4x5".
