Caption: Leaf section. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a section through a fractured leaf. At right is a single layer of cells that forms the epidermis of the leaf. The top layer (seen here at left) of the leaf interior is made up of palisade mesophyll tissue. One of the tightly packed palisade cells (light brown) has been fractured open to reveal its chloroplasts (green), the sites of photosynthesis.
