Caption: Elaeagnus pungens leaf. Light micrograph of the underside of a leaf from an Elaeagnus pungens Maculata' plant, showing the 'felt' of tiny hairs (trichomes) that cover it. These trichomes help to defend the leaf from insects and also slow down water loss through transpiration. Magnification: x5, when printed 10 centimetres wide.
