Specialisation of cells

Our Biology teacher Male usked to put a picture, the shape, and how the shape is adapted to its function, of ciliated cells, root hair cells, xylem vessels, palisade mesophyll cells, nerve cells, red blood cells and sperm and egg cells. I worked with Bautista olaizola.

1.Ciliated cell

The cilia is the adaptation.

2. Root hair cells

This cells have been adapted to increase the surface area so that water and minerals can be absorbed.

3. Xylem vassels

The adaptation is that they are connected to each other and have a long narrow tube to transport water and mineral salts.

4. Palisade mesophyll cells

The adaptation is that they have lots of chloroplasts which contain chlorophyll which is used for photosynthesis.

5. Nerve cells

The adaptation is that it has axon buttons which can join to different parts of our body to transmit information in the form of electrical impulses.

6. Red blood cells

Its small size lets red blood cells pass through narrow capillaries and provides a large surface area, allowing rapid diffusion of oxygen.

7.Sperm and egg cell

The adaptation is that the head contains genetic information and an enzyme to help penetrate the egg cell membrane.
