Olive leaf trichomes. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of peltate trichomes (modified hairs, light green) and stomata (pores) on the surface of an olive leaf (Olea europaea). Olive trees live up to 2000 years in extremely dry environments and these specialised structures prevent water loss from the leaf.
