abstract
There have been few comparative studies of leaf anatomy within subfamily Bromelioideae (Pineapple Family), despite the fact that such data have general utility in helping to clarify taxonomic relationships. This study focused on the leaf epidermis, and adjacent cells (e.g., trichomes, hypodermis) from 20 randomly selected Bromeliaceae species cultivated in the Williams Conservatory, University of Wyoming. This comparative survey concentrated on the size and shape of epidermis cells, the size and density of stomata and trichomes, and the cross sectional appearance of the epidermal and hypodermal layers. Both quantitative and qualitative data were collected, and these will be valuable new additions to the technical, systematic descriptions for these species.
