Why leaves are of different shapes and sizes?

The variation in the shape and size of leaves depends on the adaptation to climate, availability of light, altitude, soil nutrient content, and ecological competition from other plants.

For Example-

The leaves of desert plants need to store up water as much as possible, and due to this, the leaves become thicker and smaller so that water that the plant is storing does not evaporate.
