Caption: Dicotyledon leaf. Illustration showing the anatomy and cell structure of a dicotyledon leaf. The lower surface of the leaf is seen at top. Stomata (brown, pores) are present on the lower epidermis through which gaseous exchange occurs. Under the one- cell thick epidermis, two layers of mesophyll cells are found. Spongy mesophyll (green) consists of loosely packed cells; a palisade layer (yellow) contains cells important in photosynthesis. At centre left, a leaf vein (vascular bundle) is surrounded by a bundle sheath (orange); within the sheath are xylem (pink) and phloem (white) cells which transport water and nutrients.
