Biology - Hydrophytic Plants

Hydrophytic Plants

Elodea: like most pond weeds, its leaves have no stomata

_Hydrophytic_ plants (water lovers), by contrast, have an abundant supply
of water.

* leaves and cuticle are thin

* large intercellular air spaces give buoyancy and are reservoirs for
gases

* submerged leaves do not have stomata

* floating leaves have stomata on the upper surface

For example, water lily plants, other pond weeds, etc.

As water can be absorbed over the whole surface, xylem [1] vessels are
reduced or absent.
