Caption: Lantana leaf trichome. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a hair-like growth called a trichome (green), on the surface of a Lantana sp. leaf. Trichomes protect the plant against predators and water loss through evaporation. Also seen are several stomata (brown), minute holes on the underside of a leaf that are used in gas exchange.
