Upper Epidermis (Epidermal Tissue)
This covers the whole plant. It is transparent. Lets light through to the palisade layer.
1 of 6
Palisade Mesophyll Tissue
This has lots of chloroplasts. They are near the top of the leaf to get more light
2 of 6
Spongy Mesophyll Tissue
This contains air spaces which increase the rate of diffusion of gases.
3 of 6
Stomata
These let gases diffuse into and out of the leaf. They are opened and closed in response to the environment. They are controlled by the guard cells.
4 of 6
Meristem Tissue
This is found at the growing tips of shoots and roots
5 of 6
Xylem and Phloem
These bring water and nutrients to the leaf and take away glucose produced by photosynthesis. They also support the leaf.
