Caption: Petal trichomes. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the surface of a periwinkle (Vinca sp.) petal. The petal is covered in tiny epidermal hairs (trichomes). Trichomes have many specialised functions, which include protecting a plant against pests, and the reduction of water loss through evaporation.
