Caption: Tobacco leaf. Coloured environmental scanning electron micrograph (ESEM) of the surface of a tobacco (Nicotiana sp.) leaf. The surface is covered in glandular trichomes (hair-like) that secrete distasteful chemicals to deter pests from feeding on the leaves. Also seen are stomata (light green ovals), pores that are the sight of gaseous exchange in the plant.
