South east Rajasthan harbors differential climatic and topographical niches and nests various aboriginals’ ethical tribes. These tribes deploy ancestral therapeutic methods to treat different maladies including modern life style mediated anomalies including wide spread diabetes mellitus II. Among various enlisted hypoglycemic plants, Syzygium cumini
and Trigonella foenum graecum
are utmost popular antihyperglycemic source. As Rajasthan differs drastically in its topography, the variants of these plants also form deviated clutches with different degree and clinical applicability. Therefore, the present study was carried out to analyze the morpho-metric differences among the variants so that the appropriate variant can be used for clinical purposes. Both the studied plants were analyzed using taxonomical attributes as provided by Bentham and Hooker flora. For matrices, the plant parts were measured using vernier-caliper and minimum to maximum or range calculations were made by random sampling of the parts and respective herbarium was prepared for further reference. The field studies reveals existence of four variants of Syzygium cumini
and three variants of Trigonella foenum graecum
which differed morph-metrically in fruits per clusterand number of seeds per pod respectively.
