The following points highlight the top eight types of stoma in the epidermis. The types are: 1. Anomocytic 2. Anisocytic 3. Paracytic 4. Diacytic 5. Actinocytic 6. The stomata are minute pores which occur in the epidermis of the plants. Stomata. Guard cells of Vicia faba. Epidermis. 2. Cruciferous or Anisocytic. Anomocytic. Stomata are with few surrounding cells which are undifferen- tiated from the normal epidermal cells (Fig. 1I). Anomotetracytic.

In this type of stoma there are two subsidiary cells each of which is situated laterally on either side of the pair of guard cells. The additional subsidiary cells occur on the lateral sides of stoma, each being present on each of the two lateral sides. Each stoma remains surrounded by two kidneys or bean shaped epidermal cells the guard cells.

The rest occurs on lateral sides, two being on each side. The characteristic of these guard cells is that their walls and those of the subsidiary cells are partly lignified and partly non-lignified.

A numerical model analysis”.

In their median parts the guard cells are elliptical in section and have narrow lumina. Anatomy of Seed Plants. Two subsidiary cells are smaller and roundish than the rest. Carbon dioxide, a key reactant in photosynthesis, is present in the atmosphere at a concentration of about ppm.

The guard mother cell then makes one symmetrical division, which forms a pair of guard cells. Under normal conditions the stomata remain closed in the absence of light or in night or remain open in the presence of light or in day time. Oxygen produced as a by-product of photosynthesis diffuses out to the atmosphere through these same openings. Different classifications of stoma types exist.


This approach, however, is severely limited by the capacity to store fixed carbon in the vacuoles, so it is preferable only when water is severely limiting. Nerium oleanderconifers, and Drimys winteri which is a species of plant found in the cloud forest. Narrower stomatal apertures can be used in conjunction with an intermediary molecule with a high carbon dioxide affinity, PEPcase Phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase.

The two guard cells of stoma remain surrounded by two subsidiary cells each being present on each lateral side of guard cells.

What is Vegetative Propagation? The two reniform guard cells of stoma remain surrounded by subsidiary cells that are in number. This is the most common and predominant type of stomatal complex and spreads over 24 monocot families so far investigated. The stoma is surrounded by four or more subsidiary cells, which form one or two narrow rings around the guard cells.

Types of Stomata 3. This page was last edited on 10 Novemberat A group of mostly desert etomata called “CAM” plants Crassulacean acid metabolismafter the family Crassulaceae, which includes the species in which the CAM process was first discovered open their stomata at night when water evaporates more slowly from leaves for stomaha given degree of stomatal openinguse PEPcarboxylase to fix carbon dioxide and store the products in large vacuoles.

Such type of stomatal complex with four subsidiary cells occurs in Calycanthaceae.

Members of Liliaceae, Orchidaceae etc. The roundish cells are present at the ends of paired guard cells —each being present on each end.

Top 8 Types of Stoma in the Epidermis | Plants

After reading this article you will learn about: However, with the virulent bacteria applied to Arabidopsis plant leaves in the experiment, the bacteria released the chemical coronatinewhich forced the stomata open again stomataa a few hours. The following plants are examples of species with stomatal crypts or antechambers: Stomata are present in the sporophyte generation of all land plant groups except liverworts.


As a result, the PEPCase alternative is preferable only where water is limiting but light is plentiful, or where high temperatures increase the solubility of oxygen relative to that of carbon dioxide, magnifying RuBisCo’s oxygenation problem.

The two guard cells of a stoma are without any subsidiary cells.

They also contain a larger proportion anomofytic protoplasm than other epidermal cells. Also, water vapor diffuses through the stomata into the atmosphere in a process called transpiration. The two laterals lie parallel to guard cell. This is a question and answer forum for students, teachers and general visitors for exchanging articles, answers and notes. Tetracytic stoma characterizes numerous monocotyledonous families. Members of Commelinaceae, Palmae, Musaceae etc. Learning and Loving Plants.

In some cases, chloride ions enter, while in other plants the organic ion malate is produced in guard cells. This increases the cell’s volume and turgor pressure.

In Wasser, Solomon P. Each subsidiary cell occurs on each of the four sides of paired guard cells.

The roundish cells are situated at the ends of paired guard cells, each being on each end. Metcalfe and Chalk classified stomata on the basis of number and arrangement of the subsidiary cells in to the following types:.
