The development of cell pattern in the root epidermis.
The root epidermis of most angiosperms is composed of a patterned array of hair and non-hair cells. Hair cells may develop randomly in any location in the epidermis (type 1), from specialized cells that form as result of an asymmetric cell division in a mother cell (type 2) or cells may be arranged in files of one cell type or the other (type 3).
