Epidermis

The epidermis is a stratified squamous keratinized epithelium composed mostly of keratinocytes arranged in multiple strata.  Keratinocytes undergo an apoptosis-like process, producing a cornified layer at the surface.  This epithelium is specialized to provide protection against physical trauma and desiccation, and presents a barrier to infectious agents.  1000x
