Question:

Why do some types of leaves have more stomates than others?

Answer:

Dicotyledons have more stomata on the lower than the upper epidermis. Monocotyledons, have the same # of stomata on the 2 epidermes. Plants with floating leaves, may only have stomata on the upper epidermis; submerged leaves may lack it entirely.
