Difference between Monocot and Dicot Leaf

monocot vs dicot leaves

Monocot Leaf vs Dicot Leaf 
Monocot Leaf
  • Symmetry: Isobilateral
  • Stomata distribution: Amphistomatic i.e., stomata equally distributed on both the surfaces.
  • Bulliform cells: Present on upper epidermis.
  • Mesophyll: Only spongy parenchyma is present which has very small intercellular spaces.
  • Bundle sheath: Made of parenchyma but just above and below the vascular bundles are found sclerenchymatous cells (upto epidermis)
Dicot Leaf
  • Symmetry: Dorsiventral
  • Stomata distribution: Hypostomatic i.e., stomata present on lower surface of leaf.
  • Bulliform cells: Usually absent.
  • Mesophyll: Made up of two types of tissues: Palisade parenchyma and spongy parenchyma with large intercellular spaces.
  • Bundle sheath: Made up of parenchyma. Just above and below the vascular bundle some parenchymatous cells or collenchymatous cells are present up to epidermis.

on the monocot leaf,the stomata is more on the lower part of the leaf than the upper part right?...because your statement saying they are equally distributed is confusing me...

No you are wrong.
Stomata are equally distributed on both surfaces of epidermis.(monocot)
And stomata are more on lower surface (dicot)

Nice

Oh oooo its still confusing please more briefly explain it

The picture does not say which one is which

kushagra said...

number of stomata on both surfaces i.e adaxial (upper) and abaxial (lower) are equal in monocot leaves
