Caption: Potato leaf (Solanum tuberosum) surface, coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM). It is covered in hair-like growths called trichomes. The long spiky trichomes protect the plant against predators and water loss through evaporation. The rounded trichomes secrete oils that are irritating to predatory insects. Magnification: x75 when printed at 10 centimetres wide.
