Micro-morphological study of Evolvulus spp. (Convolvulaceae): the old world medicinal plants

HISTORY: Several medicinal properties have been reported for plants in the genus Evolvulus, such as a brain tonic and antifungal from Evolvulus alsinoides, and a sedative and an anthelmintic from Evolvulus nummularius. The purpose of this study was to investigate the micromorphology of two Evolvulus taxa utilized for herbal medications compared to one worldwide ornamental varieties by utilizing peeling off, paraffin acetolysis, embedding, and sem methods in order to support types identification. Y-shaped hairs were located in 2 types yet not in E. nummularius. Isobilateral mesophyll happens in both E. alsinoides and Evolvulus glomeratus, yet a dorsiventral mesophyll is existing in E. nummularius. Stems contain a solitary layer of skin, one to four chlorenchyma layers, one to 7 layers of cortical cells and a bicollateral package with pith in the facility. VERDICTS: An identification key to types is constructed based on fallen leave composition and seed layer personalities.
