1. upper epidermis 2. mesophyll 3. lower epidermis 4. guard cells, 5. Stomata.
25) Lets say we did a class experiment with 6 plants of the same kind (controlled variable) and
we
grew them in different temperatures (changing variable) and observed their rates of
photosynthesis. The class data was then plotted below:

What can you conclude from this data about the effect of temperature on the rate of
photosynthesis for this plant? (2 points max)
