  • Structure of the Leaf for Photosynthesis
    • Leaves are broad - Large SA exposed to light
    • Chloroplasts found in palisade layer - near the top
    • Upper epidermis - transparent and lets light in
    • Waxy Cuticle helps reduce water loss
    • Vascular bundles - transport products and needs of photosynthesis
    • Leave efficient gas exchange - stomata let CO2 diffuse directly out
