What is the protective structure of plants?
Different plants possess different large scale protective structures, but one protective structure that all plant cells share is the cell wall. The cell wall, composed of the carbohydrate cellulose surounds the cell membrane. It provides structural support to the cell inside as well as preventing the cell from bursting in a hypotonic environment where water diffuses into the cell.
