The following points highlight the top eight types of stoma in the epidermis. The types are: 1. Anomocytic 2. Anisocytic 3. Paracytic 4. Diacytic 5. Actinocytic 6. The stomata are minute pores which occur in the epidermis of the plants. Stomata. Guard cells of Vicia faba. Epidermis. 2. Cruciferous or Anisocytic. Anomocytic. Stomata are with few surrounding cells which are undifferen- tiated from the normal epidermal cells (Fig. 1I). Anomotetracytic.

As a result the stomatal complex has square appearance snomocytic surface view. To facilitate this function, each stoma opens in a sub-stomatal chamber or respiratory cavity.

However, most plants do not have the aforementioned facility and must therefore open and close their stomata during the daytime, in response to changing conditions, such as light intensity, humidity, and carbon dioxide concentration. A stoma appears to be embedded in epidermal cells.

Tilia and some members of Asclepiadaceae. They are sunken and appear as though suspended from the subsidiary cells arching over them. The guard cells are living and contain chloroplasts in them.

Members of Liliaceae, Orchidaceae etc. Each subsidiary cell occurs on each of the four sides of paired guard cells.

The gramineous stoma possesses guard cells of which the middle portions are much narrower than the ends so that the cells appear in surface view like dump-bells. In floating leaves Stomata are confined only on the upper surface of the leaf.

Retrieving the products of carbon fixation from PEPCase is an energy-intensive process, however. An asymmetrical cell division occurs in protodermal cells resulting in one large cell that is fated to become a pavement cell and a smaller cell called a meristemoid that will eventually differentiate into the guard cells that surround a stoma. Most tree species have stomata only on the lower leaf surface. This is the most common and predominant type of stomatal complex and spreads over 24 monocot families so far investigated.


It is not entirely certain how these responses work.

In addition to the above five types of stoma in dicotyledons Van Cotthem illustrated two more types of stoma, which are as follows Fig. Top function of Stomata. This is a question and answer forum for students, teachers and general visitors for exchanging articles, answers and notes.

Rubiaceae, Convolvulaceae, Phaseolus, Arachis and Psoralea etc. Evaporation of water also takes place through stomata. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The common wall of the subsidiary cells is at right angles to guard cells.

Generally the term stoma is applied to the stomatal opening and the guard cells. Shomata term is usually used collectively to refer to the entire stomatal complex, consisting of the paired guard cells and the pore itself, which is referred to anmoocytic the stomatal aperture.

Also, water vapor diffuses through the stomata into the atmosphere in a process called transpiration. The rate of evaporation from a leaf can be determined using a photosynthesis system. This page was last edited on 10 Novemberat In this type of stoma there are two subsidiary cells each of which is situated laterally on either side of anomocytiic pair of guard cells.

The number of stomata may also range on the surface of a single leaf from a few thousand to hundreds of thousands per square centimetre. Stelar System of Plant: In other projects Wikimedia Commons.

Ordinarily, carbon dioxide is fixed to ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate RuBP by the enzyme RuBisCO in mesophyll cells exposed directly to the air spaces inside the leaf. The gene HIC high carbon dioxide encodes a negative regulator for the development of stomata in plants.


Definition | Paracytic stomata

Oxygen produced as a by-product of photosynthesis diffuses out to the atmosphere through these same openings. The roundish cells are situated at the ends of paired guard cells, each being on each end. In their median parts the guard cells are elliptical in section and have narrow lumina. As a result, the PEPCase alternative is preferable only where water is limiting but light is plentiful, or where high temperatures increase the solubility of oxygen relative to that of ahomocytic dioxide, magnifying RuBisCo’s oxygenation problem.

The inverse of r is conductance to water vapor gso the equation can be rearranged to; [14]. Monocotyledons such as stomaatoat and maize may have about the same number of stomata on both leaf surfaces.

In Pandanus haerbachii Pandanaceae there are four subsidiary cells among which two are smaller and roundish than the other two. The transpiration rate is dependent on the diffusion resistance provided by the stomatal pores, and also on the humidity gradient between the leaf’s internal air spaces and the outside air.

Actinocytic stoma remains surrounded by a circle of radiating cells. The basis of classification is the presence or ajomocytic of subsidiary cells and when present the number, shape and arrangement in relation to guard cells form the basis.

Types of Stomata in Plants. The stomata are minute pores which occur in the epidermis of the plants.
