A typical leaf commonly has a broad thin, flat structure called the lamina. Just like the diagram of a leaf provided above. The thin stalk below the lamina is the petiole. The lamina possesses a network of veins. The veins have both xylem and phloem elements which are continuous with similar tissues of the stem through those of the petiole. A strong vein, known as the midrib, runs centrally through the leaf- blade from its base to the apex. The vertical anatomy of the leaf is also provided in the following diagrams.
Leaves that do not have a petiole and are directly attached to the plant stem are called sessile leaves. Leaves also have stipules, small green appendages usually found at the base of the petiole. The edge of the leaf is called the margin. The leaf blade is composed of tissue layers, each having an important part to play in a functioning leaf. Find these structures on the following diagram of leaf tissues.
