They are easily broken down due to their straight edge structure their leaves' epidermis layer, the leaves' easily digestible mesophyll
cell ratio (57% to 66%) and air gap ratio between cells (10% to 35%) is high and thus, digestive bacteria can easily invade the leaves (Tan and Mentese, 2003).
The larvae were found between the upper and lower leaf epidermis, feeding on mesophyll
tissues and causing mines or blotches on leaves.
2007) for each species; (4) density of venation (DV), the average of the number of veins crossing three 1 cm lines drawn perpendicularly to the rachis at the basal, middle and apical portion of the blade (Uhl and Moosbrugger, 1999); in species with obscured veins, 5% KOH solution was used to clear mesophyll
tissue (Kessler et al.
It the only genus in the order known to parasitize the hosts mesophyll

in soil water by actively uptaking these heavy metals, moving them via xylem out of the roots, and sequestering them in the vacuoles of leaf mesophyll
Furthermore, modifications in the mesophyll
thickness and the epidermis, changes in the stomata density and the differentiation of the endoderm, cortex and vascular cylinder may occur.
1986), and alterations in mesophyll
cells and chloroplast shapes under the influence of acid rain (Back & Huttunen, 1992) are described.
1996); however we follow Grubb (1974) in distinguishing between lower montane evergreen forest, which is dominated by trees with mesophyll
leaf types and vascular epiphytes, and upper montane forest with more microphyllous trees and bryophytic epiphytes.
Preliminary data was generated by attempting to liberate leaf mesophyll
protoplasts from N.
