Micromorphological, Anatomical and Pollen Ornamentation Study on Four Desert Species of Salvia in Center of Iran

A. Jafari and M. Nikian    

Abstract: The present study tends to investigate the micromorphology, anatomy and palynology of four desert species of Salvia in center of Iran. For comparative micromorphology investigation, the shape of leaf, bracts and calyx were studied with SEM. To conduct the comparative study of anatomy characters, sections from stem were prepared using microtome and differential staining. In this part of investigation, arrangement of vessel and arrangement of tissues in stem were studied. For the palynology study, too, a comparative investigation on the species showed, the pollen was problate spheroidal, hexacolpate, bireticulate and semi- tectate or tectate. Finally, micromorphology study, is useful for identification of studied species.
