ABSTRACT
The article offers information on the consideration related to the behaviour of stomata of plant species, associated with the development of plant growth under stress. It is stated that despite the decreased of leaf photosynthesis, stomata still contribute in preserving high water content in the leaves. Moreover, stomatal response is said to have a sensitive indicator for the growth of plant under stressful operations.

    We report the stomatal cluster development mechanism and distribution pattern in Cinnamomum camphora. The results indicated that the clustered arrangement of meristemoids at the juvenile stage of the leaf development contributed greatly to the pattern of stomatal clusters. Additionally, division...
