What Are the Different Types of Plant Cells?
Plant cells differ structurally from the cells of most other organisms in a few key ways. Specifically, plant cells are usually larger than animal cells and are surrounded by a rigid cell wall made from cellulose. Also, they often have a large central vacuole that takes up most of the cell, and if they carry out photosynthesis, the plant cells will have chloroplasts. This does not mean that all plant cells are the same. In fact, there are a number of different types of cells found in most plants.
