Draw a well labeled diagram of a plant cell? Mention the important features of the plant cells that play role in photosynthesis.
The important features of the plant cell which play role in photosynthesis are:
Plastids: Plastids are present only in plant cells. Plastids store different types of pigments.
Types of plastids are:
- Chloroplasts: these store green pigment called chlorophyll.
- Chromoplasts: these store xanthophylls, carotene (other pigments).
- Leucoplasts: store starch.
- Chlorophyll absorbs sunlight to convert it into chemical energy.
