Leaf morphology and cuticular studies in Ledebouria revoluta (L.f.) Jessop (Asparagaceae) in India


P. V. Deshmukh, S. R. Yadav and M. M. Lekhak


 In this study 27 populations of Ledebouria revoluata (Asparagaceae) from different localities in the peninsular India were examined for stomatal frequency, stomatal index, stomatal cell size, epidermal cell frequency and epidermal cell size. The results showed that there were significant differences in different populations in terms of leaf shape, size and stomatal parameters. Leaves were amphistomatic and their length ranged from 4.0 – 33.7 cm. In majority of the populations, stomatal frequency was higher on abaxial side with maximum value (137.20/mm2) recorded in the population collected from the Shivaji University Campus, Kolhapur.
