Abstract: Pachypodium lamerei Drake (family Apocynaceae) is native to Madagascar and is known as Madagascar palm. Reviewing the available literature, only one study could be traced concerning the microscopical features of P. namaquanum. The present study investigates various standardized parameters such as macroscopic and microscopic characters which could be helpful in authentication of the leaf of P. lamerei Drake.
Leaves including the petiole; A-Upper surface and B-Lower surface (Both x 0.33).
