Caption: Leaf anatomy. Light micrograph of a transverse section through a leaf from a Rhizophora sp. mangrove plant. The top layer is the cuticle (yellow). Tannin, a chemical contained in this plant's leaves, is shown in red. The small yellow drops are oil drops contained in palisade cells (rectangular). The larger structure at centre left is a vascular bundle (red and yellow), which transports water, sugars, nutrients and hormones around the plant.
