Stomata Question.

Post by negativefx14 » Sun Jan 13, 2008 8:18 pm

How long does the stoma stay open when it is closed?

Does it open and close instantly or not?

Also, another question. if the stomata is closed, then CO2 doesnt enter much if not at all correct, but is O2 able to enter during this time?

do you know the structure of a stomata?

Learn the structure first. You cannot understand function if you do not understand structure
