Caption: Tomato leaf. Light micrograph of a transverse section through the midrib of a tomato (Lycopersicum esculentum) leaf. The upper and lower epidermis on the surfaces of the leaf are blue. Under the upper epidermis are palisade cells (yellow), which contain chloroplasts, the site of photosynthesis. Within the midrib is a vascular bundle, composed of xylem (red) and phloem (dark blue) cells, which transport water and carbohydrates around the plant respectively. Magnification: x14 when printed at 10 centimetres wide.
