LM of the leaf of the sensitive plant

Light micrograph of the surface of a leaf of the sensitive plant, Mimosa pudica, showing the interlocking, jigsaw-like network of epidermal cells. The tiny, leaf-shaped structures visible on the leaf surface are stomata (pores), which provide the plant with a means of gaseous exchange between the atmosphere & the internal tissues. The pores are held open during the day & are closed at night to conserve water. M. pudica is known as the sensitive plant because it reacts to being touched; the leaves fold together rapidly and the leaf stalks droop. The plant quickly recovers its former shape if left undisturbed. Magnification: x400 at 35mm size

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases the intricate beauty of a leaf from the sensitive plant, scientifically known as Mimosa pudica. Through this light micrograph, we are granted a glimpse into the surface of the leaf, revealing an interlocking network of epidermal cells resembling a jigsaw puzzle. The leaf-shaped structures scattered across the surface are stomata, which serve as vital pores for gaseous exchange between the atmosphere and internal tissues of the plant. Fascinatingly, these pores exhibit dynamic behavior by remaining open during daylight hours and closing at night to conserve precious water resources. Mimosa pudica earned its moniker as the sensitive plant due to its extraordinary response to touch. When disturbed or touched, its leaves swiftly fold together while their stalks droop in reaction. However, if left undisturbed, this remarkable plant quickly regains its original form. At a magnification level of x400 on a 35mm size scale, this image offers us an up-close encounter with nature's marvels. It reminds us that even within seemingly ordinary elements like leaves lie hidden wonders waiting to be discovered and appreciated. This stunning visual representation is brought to you by Science Photo Library—a testament to their dedication in capturing and sharing awe-inspiring moments from our natural world without any commercial intentions.
