Trichomes on Salvia pomifera (Lamiaceae) in Turkey [Plaukeliai ant Turkijoje aptinkamos Salvia pomifera (Lamiaceae) organų]


Morphology and localization of glandular and non-glandular trichomes on vegetative and reproductive organs of Salvia pomifera were investigated by light and scanning electron microscopy. This species is endemic to the east Mediterranean region. Five distinct types of glandular trichomes (one peltate and four capitate) were determined on the organs of this species. The peltate trichomes were characterized by a short stalk cell, a basal cell and a large spherical two to four-celled head. The capitate trichomes consisted of one to four-celled stalk, one-celled neck and one to two-celled head. On the leaves and calyx peltate trichomes were abundant, while on the stem and petiole they were rare. The capitate glandular and non-glandular trichomes were widely observed on vegetative and reproductive organs of S. pomifera.
