About this book

The aerial surfaces of many plant species are covered in hairs (trichomes). In this volume, plant scientists from diverse backgrounds present reviews which summarise the current understanding of these structures by discussing ultrastructure, biochemistry, differentiation and development, as well as their physiological and ecological roles.
