Comments Trichomes of Arabidopsis thaliana comprise a single cell, each 300–500 µm in length with, usually, three to four branches. In contrast to trichomes from other plants species, Arabidopsis trichomes are non-glandular and appear to act as a simple mechanical barrier on the leaf surface (Esau, 1953 Glover, 2000).
