No. There is just the cell membrane, cytoplasm and the nucleus. No, a Plant cell has a Cell Wall but a Animal has a cell membrane which is the same thing as a plasma membrane
yes ------------------- Actually, that is incorrect. Most plant cells have cell walls as a distinct type of structure. Other cells including bacteria and animal cells have a cell membrane or a plasma membrane as their outer boundary.
Not all leaves have a waxy surface, but some do. Plant cuticles are a protective waxy covering produced only by the epidermal cells of leaves, young shoots and all other aerial plant organs without periderm.
Because an onion develops in the ground, and chloroplasts develop in the sunlight. Therefore no chloroplasts form. Think of it this way: Tree leaves contain chloroplasts because they contain chlorophyll in order for the leaves to turn colors. But who has ever heard of an onion changing colors beca…use it's fall?! Onions dont need chloroplasts, so they dont have them. (MORE)
Chloroplasts, because the onion does not undergo photosynthesis. The onion plant does but the onion itself is a bulb.
Cell wall is a cellular structure present in plants they are madeup of cellouse and provide rigidity and structural strength to theplants cell while animals need to move around so that animals donot need cellouse cell wall is absent in animals cell in order toallow them to change their shape when ne…ceessary.

A leaf does have a cell wall because it is a plant. All plants have cell walls.
No, consumer organisms (herbivores) only eat the producer plants (green plant material). The consumer only gains energy form the producer things like chloroplasts are just digested and not transferred into the cells of the consumer.
The cuticle- The thin waxy coering that prevents water loss. Therefore, the cuticle keeps the plant from drying out.
Some are used to create more surface area. Some are used for protection and can be sticky or spiked and also some may be used to keep out a certain amount of light if needed.
Plants need a large surface area for the up-take of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere for the process of photosynthesis. Unforunately, this increased surface area increases the volume of water lost by transpiration, so a waxy cuticle located on the surface of the leaves reduces excessive water loss….. However, this prevents gases entering or leaving the leaf, so tiny holes called stomata are postitioned on the unerside of the leaf, where less evaporation takes place, but where gases can move freely also.

How would you prepare a wet-mount slide of a red onion cell with the cell membrane shirnking away from the cell wall?
add ethanol onto the thin cell layer on the slide and watch under a microscope. the cell membrane moves away from the cell wall as the cell is becoming plasmolized and the red dye of the onion cell spreads as there is no longer a membrane to contain it
Some Protista cells have cell walls, while others do not. Animalcells do not have cell walls, but plant cells do.
Yes. All plants have cell walls, this includes onions. I think it is because it makes the plants themselves stronger but I'm not sure about the explanation, all I know is that plants' cell's have cell walls.
Cell membranes are made of phospolipids, or at least that's the major part. Theires a bunch of stuff imbeded in it. They form a double membrane that keeps most things in the cell in and things outside the cell out. Proteins are imbeded in it for both structure and jobs. As for cell walls im not enti…rly sure but i belive it is a starch. Cell walls are only in plants though and i have never studied botany so im don't know much more than that.

it is called the epidermis otherwise known as the part of a plant that is compared to your skin
When I did the lab, I took just a bit of one layer of onion, put it on a slide and dropped a little iodine on it so you can see it better. I put a cover slip over it after that was done. Hope that helps! Firstly take forceps then take out thin onion layer from it .place onion layer on the slide and …drop some ink drops(atleast 3) on it for a clearer vision and then cover it with a cover slip (MORE)
it makes a thin waxy layer on the leaf which prevents excess loss of water.
During respiration oxygen from the atmosphere diffuses into the stomata and then into the cells of the leaf. When carbon dioxide concentration in the cells increases, the stomata opens and releases carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. The opening and closing of stomata is guaurded by guard cells.
An epidermal cell is a cell that is a cell that is part of theouter layer of an organism
An epidermal cell is a cell that is part of the outer layer of an organism. For example, in humans, skin cells are epidermal. Leaves on plants have epidermal layers on the top and bottom of the leaf.
The specialized cells help to facilitate diffusion of substances into the plant (especially mineral ions and water). However the whole root system serves this process through acrive transport of the mineral ions which creates a diffusion gradient.
cell wall is present in plants while animals have cell membrane. cell wall mainly helps the plant to remain rigid and fixed. this helps the plants because they are immobile. the cell wall mainly contains cellulose and other substances, which are the main reasons why the trunks and branches of the …trees are strong. the cell membrane is made up of proteins and lipids. cell membrane has the same functions as the cell wall but then, it does not have cellulose and other substances because the basic activity and functioning of the two creatures itself is different:) (MORE)
The waxy cuticle prevents the excessive transpiration from the leaves. However, the transpiration, a term for water evaporation from plants, can still occur through stomata. Without cuticle layer, the water will evaporates through the epidermis much more easily. \nThe transpiration itself is an impo…rtant factor that drives the water movement inside a plant. As a water in a leaf evaporates, the empty space left in the leaf will "pull" the water molecules from roots and stem. So, transpiration is needed but not too much.\n\n (MORE)
It is used to conserve water, facilitate plant functions, and helpregulate healthy growth in the plant.
Yes a leaf can not have a waxy surface if it is so adapted. The waxy surface is designed to keep water off, and inside of the leaf. Leaves in the rain forest often have a waxy surface to keep from being constantly saturated in water.
it is important because if there is no cell wall it would be floppy and wilted because it is like not having any bones and it would not have a shape. it is important for it to have a large surface area so it can do more photosynthesis.
As with any cell, there are many chemicals in Elodea. If you have a specific one in mind, you'll have to narrow down the description.
The cell wall of a plant is mostly cellulose - a carbohydrate. There are three layers of the cell wall: primary cell wall, middle lamella and the secondary cell wall.
Yes. All plant cells have a cellular wall, while animal and bacterial cells have cell membranes.
It is called an epidermis otherwise known as the part of a plant that is compared to your skin.
epi is a prefix meaning on or above dermal means skin So... epidermal refers to skin cells or may also refer to the outer most plant cells as well.
A eukaryotic cell is simply one which contains organelles and as such may or may not have a cell wall. Some do (such as in plants) and some don't (such as in animals).
the cell wall of gram+ve bacteria contains a large amount of peptiglycan and teichoic acids. the cell wall of gram-ve bacteria contains small amount of peptidoglycan.the outer layer of cell wall contains toxic lipopolysachharide.
The main components of a plant cell wall are cellulose, hemicellulose and pectin. Algal cell walls are usually made of a polysaccharide (such as cellulose) or a glycoprotein. Fungal cell walls are usually made of chitin.
Due to the presence of chloroplasts in the gaurd cells these are green in color.
Pahoehoe is one substance usually not present in explosive volcaniceruptions. Tephra, lava and other gasses are typically presentduring an eruption.
The cells on the outside of the leaf form the epidermis. On the bottom in the stomata. It lets carbon dioxide, water, and sunlight in and oxygen and glucose/sugar out. I don't think the shape of the leaf would really make a difference. This is something that I'm not too sure about, but I would say t…he cells don't do any different jobs depending on the shape of the leaf. Maybe different types of leaves have cells that do different jobs. (MORE)
For the cell wall, it is present in the plant because it functions is to keep the cell its shape. Example: leaf - it has its shape because it has cell wall. For the chloroplast, it is present in the plant cell because it functions is to trap sunlight for the plant to photosynthesize. Example: leaf… - it makes food for the plant with the help of the chloroplast (MORE)
they somewhat protect the leaf. so the does the sell membrane. the endoplasmis relitculum form together with the golgi bodies, then attach to the ribosomes and mitochondria
Both! The kind of outer layer depends on the type of cell - (animal or plant). A plant cell has a cell wall but the animal cell has a cell membrane. The animal cell does not have a cell wall because, a cell wall would be more hard and "strict." The animal cell needs to be more flexible and "loose." … I hope this truly helps you with your homework, worksheets, notes, etc. Your truly, Homework helper - Teacher for 8th grade (MORE)
Photosynthesis takes place in chloroplast.So cells should be exposed to light.Root cells do not get light.
Cellulose is the most notable and prominent component which is present in plant cell walls. The walls also contain types of matrix polysaccharides. One example is pectic polysaccharide.
Leaf epidermal cells are examined by making peelings of epidermalcells from both sides. Normally these peelings are stained and examined under the compoundmicroscope.
What kingdom comprises of organisms with cell walls that has the same substance as that of the outer bodies of insects?
The kingdom fungi has organisms with cell walls made of chitin (the substance that makes up insect exoskeletons).
Animals cells use a cell membrane rather than a cell wall. Animals have more active metabolisms than plants do, and therefore they need faster diffusion from cells to circulatory systems, than they would get with cell walls.
