Epidermal characteristics of some Nigerian species of Pterocarpus, Jacq. (Papilionaceae)

Epidermal characteristics of some Nigerian species of Pterocarpus, Jacq. (Papilionaceae)

New Botanist 32(1/4): 127-136

The epidermal characteristics of four Pterocarpus species: P. osun, P. santalinoides, P. soyauxii and P. midbraedii, collected in different parts of Abia and Ima States of Nigeria, were studied. The epidermal cells varied in their wall pattern, being generally pentagonal to polygonal, irregular and sinuous, with even more than one type occurring in a particular surface of leaf. The stomata of all the species were paracytic.
