Table 2. Stomatal Count and SizeMean abaxial and adaxial stomatal count for three replicates are reported, along with stomatal size mean, for four different species. Counts were done in 40x view while size was measured in 10x view and averaged among multiple stomates.SpeciesAbaxial stomataAdaxial stomataStomatal size meansPalm species 203680.06Macadamia integrifolia293140.04Polypodium16200.1Podocarpus21300.08Table 3.
