      WHY IS UPPER SURFACE OF DICOT LEAFE IS MUCH DARKER THAN LOWER.

      The concentration of the cholorphyll is in the palisade mesophyll–which is arranged closer to the topside of the leaf structure–may account for some of the color differences. Recall that the top is the surface that will be gathering light energy, hence chlorophyll positioning would mean a great deal.

      Great picture!
      The palisade mesophyll is labeled F in the image from navin.

      No, they are not. As ERS said, there is more chlorophil in the palissade tissue
