StomaToys – Learn about Stomata of Plants

Plants have tiny ‘mouths’ called STOMATA on leaf surface that let in carbon dioxide for photosynthesis in exchange of oxygen and water. Stomatal pores can open or close in response to the environment and this behaviour influences the carbon and water cycles on the Earth. Microbial pathogens or ‘germs’ invisible to our eyes can also pass through the stomatal pore. Just like if we humans put hands covered in germs into our mouth, we become sick; similarly, pathogen entering the stomata can cause infection and make plants sick! Stomata close in defence against pathogen entry to prevent disease. Thus, stomata are the guardians of plants!
