Author(s): AR Florence and C Domettila
Abstract: The present investigation is to provide information on the anatomical features of the leaves and stems of the plant Gmelina asiatica. Leaf and stem anatomy of G. asiatica was undertaken by rotary microtome and examined on photomicrographs. Anatomical characters such as echinate epidermal cells, glandular trichomes, anomocytic stomata, calcium oxalate crystals, periderm cylinder, phellem cells and vascular bundle of leaf and stem explains typical features of Verbenaceae. This study provides valuable information for reference and correct identification of the family Verbenaceae.
