Comparative Leaf Anatomy of <i>Paspalum paspalodes</i> and <i>P. vagirial</i> uni

By R. P. Ellis

Abstract

<p>The leaf blade and epidermal anatomy of <em>Paspalum paspalodes</em> (Michx.) Scribn. (syn.  <em>P. distichum</em> L.) and<em> P. vaginatum</em> Swartz is compared and discussed. Numerous anatomical differences are evidentand the species can be separated on the basis of the distribution of sclerenchyma and the shape andthickness of the leaf margin. Another distinct diagnostic difference is the shape of the adaxial ribs and furrows and their associated papillae.  <em>P. paspalodes </em>has two distinct types of abaxial epidermis: cuticular and papillate.</p
