What do you mean by leaf venation? Explain various types of leaf venation with example.
The pattern of arrangement of veins in the blade of a leaf is called leaf venation. It can be of two types:
Parallel venation: In this type of venation, the veins are parallel to each other. It is commonly found in grasses.
Reticulate venation: In this type of venation, the veins are arranged in the form of a net-like structure around the midrib. It can be easily observed in the leaves of a rose plant.
