Stomata are epidermal pores used for water and gas exchange between a plant and the atmosphere. Both the entry of carbon dioxide for photosynthesis and the evaporation of water that drives transpiration and temperature regulation are modulated by the activities of stomata. Each stomatal pore is surrounded by two highly specialized cells called guard cells (GCs), and may also be associated with neighboring subsidiary cells; this entire unit is referred to as the stomatal complex. Generation of… CONTINUE READING
