Development of non-glandular and glandular trichomes within flowers of selected Pinguicula species.

Project summary:

The aim of this project is to show anatomy and micromorphology at each developmental stage of non-glandular and glandular trichomes located within flowers of P. agnata, P. moranensis and P. vulgaris. We would like to compare trichomes development processes of these species, in order to establish differences and similarities.
