Cells
Cell Function Adaptation
Leaf palisade cell
- Packed with chloroplasts containing light-
absorbing pigment (chlorophyll) - Regularly shaped, closely packed cells form
continuous layer efficient absorption of sunlight.
Root hair cell
- Long 'finger-like' projection large surface area
for absorption - Covered in small hairs to increase surface area…

Carries out photosynthesis
Absorbs water and minerals from the soil into the plant
Fertilises egg cell (female gamete)
Female gamete- develops embryo once fertilised by sperm
Contain haemoglobin to carry oxygen to the cells.
Opens, closes and regulates size of leaf pore
Possesses cilia to trap dust, dirt and microbes…

Cells
Structure Function
Nucleus Contains genetic material which controls cells behaviour
Cell membrane Controls what passes in and out of cell
Cytoplasm Where chemical processes (controlled by enzymes) and anaerobic
respiration occur
Mitochondrion/a Site of aerobic respiration
Cell wall (made of cellulose) To strengthen and give support to cell
Chloroplast…
