The collection or mass of filaments growing from the skin of an animal, and forming a covering for a part of the head or for any part or the whole of the body.
One the above-mentioned filaments, consisting, in vertebrate animals, of a long, tubular part which is free and flexible, and a bulbous root imbedded in the skin.
A slender outgrowth from the chitinous cuticle of insects, spiders, crustaceans, and other invertebrates. Such hairs are totally unlike those of vertebrates in structure, composition, and mode of growth.
An outgrowth of the epidermis, consisting of one or of several cells, whether pointed, hooked, knobbed, or stellated. Internal hairs occur in the flower stalk of the yellow frog lily (Nuphar).
a slender flexible filament of equal diameter throughout.
a filament of keratin, composed of a long, cylindrical shaft and a root. .
an elongate single-celled or multi-celled outgrowth from the epidermis, without vascular tissue.
A uni- or multi-cellular epidermal outgrowth.
Filaments that occur all over the bodies of flies and come in a variety of sizes. Setae are enlarged hairs, but for this purpose the term hair is used to refer only to the smallest size class.
A threadlike outgrowth of the skin that is composed of columns of keratinized cells.
any of the cylindrical filaments characteristically growing from the epidermis of a mammal; "there is a hair in my soup"
a specialised outgrowth of part of the skin called the epidermis
A single or multicellular, absorptive (root hair) or secretory (glandular hair) and sometimes only a superficial outgrowth (covering hair) of the epidermal cells. The term trichome is often used but includes outgrowths from tissue below the epidermal layer. Distinguishing between hairs and trichomes can be difficult. Trichomes are usually connected to the vascular system, whereas hairs lack a vascular connection.
A mammal's outermost covering, made up of threadlike growths on the skin.
a slender, threadlike outgrowth of the skin of an animal
Body covering of mammals.
helps mammals stay warm and protects their skin.
A keratinous strand produced by epithelial cells of the hair follicle.
