medical illustration of Leaf with chloroplasts
Here a freeze fracture image (Tanaka break) shows a section through a leaf of the black night shade (Solanum nigrum). The chloroplasts (green) are seen through the cell walls in a fractured state. Inside the chloroplasts the light reactions of photosynthesis take place.
