What are different types of leaves and their names?

Answer

Leaves are considered an organ on plants and are the extensions that come off from the stem. Because plants are so diverse, there are many different types of leaves. Botanists classify plants by the number of leaves they have on stems and by the sections, such as the petiole or blade. Some of their names are petiolated, sessile, simple, compound, sinuate, dentate, entire, serrate, lobed, elliptic, cordate, lanceolate, acicular, linear, ovate, pinnate, palmate, whorled, rosulate, and hastate.
