Abstract:

Cleome monophylla L. belongs to the family Cleomaceae (spindle flower family) and is commonly used in traditional and folklore medicines for treating various diseases. The present study investigated the morpho-anatomical characterization of leaf, stem, root and powder of C. monophylla. The result revealed a special type of trichome called shaggy-trichome frequently on the stem and other organs of the plants, anisocytic and actinocytic type of stomata in the leaf. A large number of fibres, vessel elements, tracheids and parenchyma cells were observed in the plant powder.
