Summary:
Hairs of 412 taxa representing 66 genera of New World Melastomataceae were examined by SEM. Representatives for each hair type are illustrated by SEM micrographs. Epicuticular waxes are illustrated. Unusual stomatal apertures on intersepalar hairs in the genera Pterolepis and Tibouchina were found. Parallel evolution of hairs in different genera and subgeneric divisions has occurred frequently.

Abstract:

Hairs of 412 taxa representing 66 genera of New World Melastomataceae were examined by SEM. Representatives for each hair type are illustrated by SEM micrographs. Epicuticular waxes are illustrated. Unusual stomatal apertures on intersepalar hairs in the genera Pterolepis and Tibouchina were found. Parallel evolution of hairs in different genera and subgeneric divisions has occurred frequently. Hair diversity probably is the result of evolution for protection against arthropod predators.
