Eugenia jambolana is used as antibacterial, strengthening of teeth and gums. Both the plants are extensively used as tribal medicines in different parts of country.
As there is no record of pharmacognostical work on such potential drugs, the present work is taken up to produce the pharmacognostical standards.
