Caption: Pondweed leaf. Light micrograph of a section through a pondweed (Potamogeton sp.) leaf. At left is the vascular bundle (round) of xylem (red) and phloem tissue that transport water and carbohydrates around the plant respectively. All aquatic plants (hydrophytes) have a similar structure. The upper epidermis of the leaf has a thin cuticle (top) underneath which is a multi-layered palisade mesophyll. In-between the palisade cells are elongated sclereids for support. Underneath this is the spongy mesophyll and large intercellular air spaces (lacunae, white).
