was trying to do my science homework but I could not find what I was looking
for. So I am wondering if you can put it on your site. What I
was looking for was: what are the holes called in a leaf?
Stoma (plural, stomata) (Gr. stoma, mouth), a minute opening, bordered by guard cells in the epidermis of leaves and stems, through which gases pass.
[epidermis would be the outside layer]
Hope this helps.
I would say that many cells combine to make a plant or animal. An analogy would be if you tried to make a life-size model of the Statue of Liberty out of meatballs. The meatballs would be the cells.
There are trillions of cells in one human body. There are different functions for the various kinds of cells. (All cells are pretty much the same, with small variations between them -- but the variations are what allow the cells to perform different tasks.) For instance you have muscle cells and brain cells and red blood cells.
And, plants are also composed of multi-millions or trillions of cells (depends on the size) and they have specialized jobs -- like root cells and leaf cells.
would be the same. There might be the tiniest of differences -- like
different people are basically the same, only some have blue eyes and others
Thank you very much !
