Epidermal cells secrete a waxy substance called cuticle, which coats, waterproofs, and protects the above-ground parts of plants. Cuticle helps prevent water loss, abrasions, infections, and damage from toxins. This tissue includes several types of specialized cells. The plant cuticle is an extracellular hydrophobic layer that covers the aerial epidermis of all land plants, providing protection against desiccation and external environmental stresses. The past decade has seen considerable progress in assembling models for the biosynthesis of its two major components, the polymer cutin and cuticular by:
State that dicotyledonous plant have apical and lateral meristems. Meristem: a plant's region where cells continue to divide and grow, often throughout it's life. Compare growth due to apical and lateral meristems in dicotyledonous plants. Apical meristem exists at the root and shoot tip, and is involved in plant elongation. The cuticle is a non-cellular, waxy protective layer covering the outer cell layer of the green, aerial parts of land plants. Cuticles protect plants against desiccation (losing water to the air), UV radiation, and many kinds of physical, chemical, and biological agents. The cuticle has basically the same function as the human skin: it protects.
Plant cuticles provide barriers to water loss and arose as aquatic plants adapted to the dry terrestrial environment. The cuticle components, waxes and the fatty acid-based polymer cutin, are synthesized in the plant epidermis, exported across the cell wall, and deposited on the plant surface. This study suggests a role for PHYTOCHROME light receptors during cuticle development in leaves of. The waxy cuticle seals up the leaf so that the only way in and out are through the stomata, which are regulated by the guard cells. So from top to bottom, a leaf's structure: Waxy cuticle .

In some higher plants, the cuticle is a water-impervious protective layer covering the epidermal cells of leaves and other parts and limiting water loss.
It consists of cutin, a waxy, water-repellent substance allied to suberin, which is found in the cell walls of corky tissue. Cutin is the major structural component (30–70%) of the plant cuticle, a thin layer of predominantly lipid material that covers all primary aerial surfaces of vascular plants.

Biology of the Arthropod Cuticle. Usually dispatched within 3 to 5 business days. Mention the words 'arthropod cuticle' to most biologists and they usually provoke a glazed expression. This is because the cuticle is commonly regarded as an inert substance. It is hoped that this book will dispel this fallacy.

A review of the first book published on the plant cuticle almost 50 years ago (Martin and Juniper, ) stated how neglected the outer layers of epidermal cells had been in the plant biology literature, and expressed hope that the timely book would help in correcting this underestimation.
These expectations have been greatly exceeded, and Cited by: The plant cuticle is an extracellular hydrophobic layer that covers the aerial epidermis of all land plants, providing protection against desiccation and external environmental stresses.
The past decade has seen considerable progress in assembling models for the biosynthesis of its two major components, the polymer cutin and cuticular waxes. The plant cuticle is the interface between the organism and its environment.
As such, it plays key roles a wide range of interactions with the environment, both abiotic and biotic. It is a hydrophobic surface, composed of both monomeric constituents, the very long-chain fatty acid derivatives known as waxes, and the complex polyester, cutin.
