A method was developed for determining the surface area and volume of rice mesophyll cells of elaborate configuration. The method was employed to calculate these indices in several types of rice mesophyll cells found in seventy samples (53 species) of diverse origin coming from Japan, China, Korea, India, Nepal, Australia, France, Italy, Uzbekistan, Afghanistan, and Krasnodar and Primorskii regions. The cultivars of diverse geographic origin varied in cell shape and size due to the number, size, and arrangement of chloroplasts. When the volumes and surface areas of leaf mesophyll cells were compared using the method reported herein and a simple empirical model of the cell as a single ellipsoid, the two methods produced relatively similar data for cell volume; however, the surface area calculated by the former method was about two times larger than in the latter case. The method described in this paper allows for accurate calculations of the volume and surface area of rice mesophyll cells when data are available on the cell shape and linear dimensions and the number of chloroplasts per cell.
