The ultrastructure of plant cells

Light shines on the upper surface of a leaf.

Palisade cells are where most photosynthesis takes place.

How are palisade cells specialised for photosynthesis?


Palisade cells

Palisade cells

  • Where are palisade cells found?

  • Draw and label a palisade cell.

  • What is the main adaptation of a palisade cell that allows it to carry out its function.

  • Why do you think palisade cells have a long thin rectangular shape?

Palisade cells

  • Where are palisade cells found?

    Part of the palisade mesophyll below the upper epidermis of the leaf.

    3. What is the main adaptation of a palisade cell that allows it to carry out its function.

    Function is to carry out photosynthesis. Contains a large amount of chloroplasts.

    4. Why do you think palisade cells have a long thin rectangular shape.

    They can be tightly packed into the layer.
