Caption: Leaf surface stomata from Arabidopsis sp. Stomata (plural of stoma) are tiny openings in the epidermis of a plant that are surrounded by pairs of crescent-shaped cells, called guard cells, that facilitate gas exchange. Arabidopsis is a N.W. American weed used in many botanical genetic studies due to its short life cycle.
