Cross-section of a leaf
Asked by | 8th Apr, 2008, 09:51: PM
The outermost Cuticle is a waxy layer that covers the epidermis of some leaves and reduces water loss
Upper and Lower Epidermis are the surface layers of a leaf that protects the inner parts of the leaf. They form the outer layer of the skin
The next layer i.e. Palisade layer contains chloroplasts which are organelles in cells that contain chlorophyll.
There are present spaces of air between the cells.
A layer of loosely arranged cells between the palisade layer and the lower epidermis of the leaf called spongy layer is also present.
