Palisade leaf cells:
adapted for photsynthesis.
- packed with chloroplasts (for photosynthesis). crammed at top of the cell so nearer light.
- tall shape for big surface area exposed to absorb CO2 from air.
- thin shape means loads can be packed at top of leaf.
adapted to open and close pores.
- kidney shape, opens and closes the stomata (pores)
- when plant has lots of water, guard cells are filled and go turgid, making the stomata open so gases can be exchanged…
