C 3 photosynthesis 3. Mention, if the following statements are True or False. This organization is to protect the stomata, which can show peripheral photosynthetic tissue and central water storage issue (diagrammatic); B, a portion (detailed) showing thick cuticle, thickenings on the radial and outer walls of the epidermal cells and sunken stomata exist in furrows. Multilayered epidermis (e.g. Sunken stomata are present in the epidermis. Mesophyll is well differentiated. Sunken stomata to reduce water loss. Cortex: It is divisible into three parts; hypodermis, palisade and parenchyma. The stomata are restricted to lower surface only. Thick cuticle on leaves. are present.
IV. … 8. Solution: Conifers have a number of xerophytic characters such as needle-like (e.g., Pinus), scale-like (e.g., Thuja) or small and leathery leaves (e.g., Araucaria), thick cuticle, sderenchymatous hypodermis and sunken stomata to reduce transpiration. Spongy parenchyma and palisade parenchyma are present. Aloe sp.). Presence of myrosin cells, which are laticiferous cells, in the hypodermal region is another characteristic feature (see Fig. The depressions also have numerous hairs. ), sclerenchymatous and several layered hypodermis (e.g. Pinus sp.) Thick cuticle is present in the epidermal layer. True & False. These plants show a number of adaptations to conserve water, like presence of thick cuticle layer, reduction in size of leaves to scales or spines, multilayered epidermis and sunken stomata in leaves. 2.23). Leaves are succulent (e.g. 5. Sunken stomata are present in the grooves. These are covered with hairs. A thick cuticle is present in the outer surface of the epidermal cells. Which of the following are correct for conifers ? Thick cuticle 2. Reduces Water Loss.
I. Needle - like leaves to reduce surface area. Sunken stomata They bear thick cuticles and sunken stomata on the surface of their leaves to reduce transpiration. The cuticle is located outside the epidermis and protects against water loss; trichomes discourage predation. Nerium sp. ... use the cuticle in tandem with their stomata to conserve water. Openings found on the under surface of the dorsiventral leaf are Stomata. 6. CAM pathway 4. On leaves, the cuticle is 1/10 to 14 micrometers thick. Hypodermis is made of a T-shaped group of sclerenchyma in the ridges. Leaves of Nerium are characterised by multilayered epidermis and a thick layer of cuticle. Xerophytes are the plants growing in water scarcity. Explanation: Xerophytes are the plants growing in water scarcity. Plants have an extensive root system to tap underground water. All of these are xerophytic characters. In Nerium, the stomata are present in Sunken pits.
III. The stomata are also sunken i.e., located in depressions. The epidermis is one layer thick, but may have more layers to prevent transpiration. In Capparis aphylla stem, the epidermis is covered with a thick cuticle. These plants show a number of adaptations to conserve water, like presence of thick cuticle layer, reduction in size of leaves to scales or spines, multilayered epidermis and sunken stomata in leaves. 7. Plants found in deserts are well adapted to cope with harsh desert conditions such as water scarcity and scorching heat. Sunken stomata are present. The epidermis consists of the upper and lower epidermis; it aids in the regulation of gas exchange via stomata.
II. Stomata are … Guttation takes place generally at Night. The leaves of the Xerophytic plants have cuticular wax. All the following are adaptations in desert plants to minimize water loss except: 1. Myrosin cells, which are laticiferous cells, in the epidermal layer the hypodermal region is another feature.
