Author : Sundaresan Nandhini, Ramalingam Radha, Vijayabharathi Rajkishore

The present study deals with evaluation of pharmacognostical characters of an important medicinal plant, Azima tetracantha Lam. The pharmacognostical studies were carried out such as organoleptic, macroscopic, microscopic and fluorescence analysis. Microscopic studies include transverse and longitudinal sections, powder microscopy and quantitative microscopy such as stomatal number, stomatal index, vein islet number and veinlet termination number. Various pharmacognostical characters observed in this study help in the identification and standardization of Azima tetracantha.
