Plastids

  1. The term plastid first used by Haeckel (1865).
  2. These are present in plants and few protists (Euglena).
  3. On the basis of function plastids are of three types - Leucoplast, Chloroplast and Chromoplast. All types of plastids have common origin from proplastids, sac like non-lamellar structures. Different types of plastids may transform from one form to another. But chromoplasts never transform to chloroplasts.
