Palisade Leaf Cells are packed with chloroplasts at the top of the cell so that they are nearer the light. They are adapted for photosynthesis.

Tall shape- larger surface area

Thin shape- Lots packed into the top of the cell

Guard cells are adapted to open and close pores.

They are a special kidney shape which opens and closes the stomata in the leaf.

Plant is full of water= Guard cells fill with water. They go plump and turgid.

Stomata then OPEN so that gases can be exchanged for photosynthesis.
