Complex patterns of multiple biomineralization in single-celled plant trichomes of the Loasaceae

New publication in American Journal of Botany

Using Scanning Electron Microscopy, the occurrence of three biominerals such as calcium phosphate, silica and calcium carbonate has been reported in single-celled plant trichomes of Loasaceae. The results indicate that biomineralization of stinging and glochidiate trichomes is remarkably diversified in several genera of Loasaceae.
