What are the adaptations of leaf for photosynthesis?

it has minute pores present on lower surface called stomata which help in easy gaseous exchange

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.
