epidermal pavement cell
- plant anatomy
- exact: célula del pavimento epidermal (Spanish)
- exact: 表皮被蓋細胞 (Japanese)
- A shoot epidermal cell that is relatively unspecialized at maturity. [source: POC:curators]
- May have sinuous anticlinal cell walls that overall give a jigsaw like appearance to the epidermis. Pavement cells are epidermal cells that are not directly associated with a stomatal complex or trichome at maturity, but they share similar developmental origins.
