Anatomical Studies of Lagenaria siceraria (Mol.) Standl and Cucumis sativa L. (Cucurbits.)

N.K. Sharma, Y.J. Thanki and Shaily Bhardwaj

Abstract:
The study was carried out on the histology of two cucurbits Lagenaria scieraria (Mol.) Standl. and Cucumis sativa L. The transverse hypocotyl and epicotyl section shows ridges alternately with furrows and root is circular. The complete cylinder of extra xylary fibres in cortex is typical of the cucumber family. Nine bicollateral vascular bundles each are situated in an inner and an outer circle. Articulated ramified sap filled idioblasts are a special feature not described until now in Cucurbits.
