Abstract

23 herbaceous taxa distributed in 9 orders and 10 monocotyledonous families were documented on nature of stomata.

Only arched epidermal cells were observed. Anomocytic, paracytic, tetracytic and hexacytic and mixed stomata were recorded.

Stomata size ranged from 17.47µm ± 0.23 x 16.13µm ± 0.29 in Smilax kraussiana to 58.80µm ± 0.33 x 50.40µm ± 0.39 in Commelina benghalensis and stomata index values varying from 0.57% in Aframomum sceptrum to 14.40% in Rhaphidophora africana were documented in this study.

ABSTRACT

Twenty taxa comprising of 13 shrubs and 7 trees, distributed in 13 orders and 13 angiospermic families were documented with descriptions for nature of stomata.

The epidermal cells are generally arched as found in 17 taxa, with 3 wavy forms.

Anomocytic, anisocytic, paracytic, diacytic, tetracytic and mixed stomata were observed.

Stomata size ranging from 18.89 x 13.40µm in Solanum torvum to 34.23 x 24.55µm in Tabernaemontana pachysiphon and stomata index values varying from 4 in Macaranga barteri to 24% in Glyphaea brevis were recorded in this study.
