A dimorphism in the chloroplasts was also put in evidence, which is related to the metabolism of the atmospheric carbon fixation. The bundle-sheath contains a morphologically distinct type of chloroplasts: they are large (0,009-0,011 mm) and have the possibility to accumulate starch : during a sunny day, the storage can be 40 % of the initial dry weight of the leaf...
