Leaf Scale

Leaf Scale

A leaf scale may be either the fine, grainy surface material of the object or a particular type of modified leaf. Red and white cedars are common trees that exhibit the flat, sharply triangular and overlapping leaves, referred to as scales. Bromeliads, however, are a family of plants that exhibit an abundance of scales covering their leaves, which play an important role in water absorption.
