An opening on a leaf through which water evaporates. The opening size is deterrmined by two guard cells - one on each side. Stomates are helpful in determining whether a conversion has been successful, since the stomates are significantly larger on a tetraploid than a diploid. This, and the size of the pollen grains (which can also be measured), will help determine if a conversion has been successful or not.
