Bio60_2021: spinach leaf

imageimage

I wanted to see what a spinach leaf that was from inside the refrigerator was like and whether or not it would differ from a leaf outside (the structure of which I was already familiar with from past biology class microscope activities). I also wanted to use a more pigmented sample. The leaf seemed more browned under the microscope, perhaps due to the fridge making it cooler than what the plant is normally “accustomed to” and the fact that the leaf was already long separated from its plant. If you look closely I think those are either cell wall divisions or leaf veins that can be seen and there are what appear to be small holes in the leaf as well. #Bio60_2021
