Adaptation of leaves to photosynthesis

  1. The leaf is only a few cells thick for easy penetration of light and gases.
  2. Wax cuticle prevent excessive water loss
  3. The palisade cells that contain numerous chloroplasts are well positioned to receive light.
  4. Presence of xylem that supply the leaf with water for photosynthesis
  5. The spongy mesophyll has many air space. Gases can readily diffuse to all photosynthetic cells
  6. They are broad and flat to offer a large surface area exposed to light and air
  7. Stomata control passage of gases
  8. The arrangement of leaves to the plant is such way that each leaf receives light.
