  • Downloads and Documents

Some trees do not possess large deciduous leaves, instead they have green needle-shaped (acicular) leaves. Due to the reduction of their surface, these leaves are well adjusted to arid conditions. In addition, they are mostly covered by a layer of wax (cuticula) and the stomatal pores are sunk deep into the tissue.
