Learn more about the anatomy of plant cell using these hands-on diagrams of plant cell in best quality! In these plant cell diagrams, the parts of plant cell system are explained in pictures. We’ll start by giving you the first plant cell anatomy below.
Plant cells are similar to animal cells in that they are both eukaryotic cells and have similar organelles. However, plant cells are generally larger than animal cells. There are many kinds of plant cell diagrams labeled that you can use as your media in case you need a reference while you are observing the cells in a microscope. The most noticeable part plant cell is the presence of the cell wall outside the cell membrane. It forms the outer lining of the cell. The cell wall mostly constitutes of cellulose and its main function is providing support and rigidity. Take a look at the following diagrams of plant cell below.
Plants cells also contain many membrane bound cellular structures. These organelles carry out specific functions necessary for survival and normal operation of the cells such as producing hormones, enzymes, and all metabolic activities of the cell. Chloroplasts are surrounded by two membranes. The outer membrane is permeable to small organic molecules, whereas the inner membrane is less permeable and studded with transport proteins. The cell wall surrounds the plasma membrane of plant cells and provides tensile strength and protection against mechanical and osmotic stress.
