CHARACTERIZATION OF THE LEAF EPIDERMIS OF TWO SESLERIA SPECIES

By COMANESCU PETRONELA and KUZMANOVIC NEVENA

Abstract

Leaf epidermis has been used as character in taxonomy of Poaceae family since the 1930s. The purpose of present study was to determine leaf epidermal features helpful in distinguishing two species of Sesleria genus – Sesleria heufleriana Schur and Sesleria uliginosa Opiz.Both the abaxial and the adaxial epidermis have been examinated for each species.So both examined species have Festucoid type of epidermis, but differences of some epidermal features exist at the species level. This include variation in number and size of epidermal cells and distribution patterns of stomata
