Abstract

The objectives of this study are to investigate any anatomical variations of midrib and petiole, leaf epidermal characters as well as leaf venation of selected medicinal plants in Sultan Idris Education University (UPSI) herbal garden. The medicinal plants selected are Averrhao bilimbi (belimbing buluh), Mimussops elengi (bunga tanjung), Euphorbia tirucali (tetulang), Plumeria rubra (kemboja), Ardisia elliptica (mata pelanduk), Alpinia conchigera (lengkuas genting), Phyllanthus pulcher (naga buaya), Pereskia sacharosa (jarum tujuh bilah), Jatropha curcas (jarak), Cinnamomum zeylanicum (kayu manis), and Tinospora crispa (patawali). This research is a type of documentation that includes the data collection and as a complementary of leaf anatomy of medicinal plants to previous study that done by Muhamad Azmi (2009). The results show that the vascularization of midrib, petiole, leaf epidermis characters and leaf venation which are varying between the plant with different family and genera of medicinal plants. Detailed anatomical descriptions of the leaf, midrib, and petiole transverse sections such as outline of midrib and petiole, vascularization, cell type and cell structure are discussed in this study. Besides that, leaf epidermal characters such as shape and pattern of epidermal cells, type of stomata, anticlinal wall and trichomes as well as leaf venation of 11 medicinal plants are also discussed. There are a few recommendations listed at the end of study that can be further improved for future research.
