Caption: Leaf trichomes. Macrophotograph of the lower surface of a leaf of the plant Elaeagnus pungens, showing the peltate scale hairs or trichomes (lighter colour against dark green of leaf). These specialised leaf structures may help slow down water loss, or discourage herbivores from eating the leaves.
