EXPERT ANSWER

Surabhi Gupta , Meritnation Expert added an answer, on 26/9/12

The adaptations of leaf for photosynthesis are as follows:

  • Leaves have chlorophyll i.e. the main site for photosynthesis.
  • The shape of the leaves enable to absorb maximum sunlight for photosynthesis.
  • Leaves have stomata which help in gas exchange and transpiration. Stomata helps the leaves in taking in carbon dioxide, a raw material for photosynthesis.
  • The wide network in leaves helps in transport of water to the leaves and prepared food to the entire plant from the leaves.
