Conclusion

B Average number of stomata is 23 - A = 23 Area of field of View (?R2) is 0.1257 - B = 0.1257 Lower surface area is 4000cm2 - LSA = 4000cm2 23x 4000 = 737,770 Stomata 0.1257 Evaluation: If there was something that could have gone wrong it probably did because this vale of stomata seems intuitively too low.
