Sunken Stomata?

Answer

Sunken stomata is an adaptive feature found in plants below the plane of the epidermis. In these plants the stomata are found embedded into the leaf layers rather than on the leaf surface. This helps in controlling the excessive water loss due to transpiration in these plants. The air in the bottom of the depression is slightly protected from wind. Any molecule of water that does escape from the stoma may remain in the depression long enough to return into the leaf.
