What are the roles of plastids in the life of a plant?
Dec 29, 2016
The plastids help in photosynthesis, coloration and reserve the food.
- The plastids are three types, the chloroplast, the chromoplast and leucoplast. All are interchangeable.
- The chloroplasts are the sites of photosynthesis.
- The color except green are determined by the presence of chromoplasts.
- The food materials are reserved in leucoplasts. Thank you
