ABSTRACT:
The present study was carried out to establish the pharmacognostical characters of stem of Tribulus terrestris L. No reports are available on the pharmacognostical studies of the stem; hence, the present study was carried out to help in identification of this plant for the future references. The microscopical studies of stem revealed the presence of cluster crystals, non-glandular hairs, starch granules, lignified fibers, pitted wood parenchyma, trachides and lignified spiral and pitted xylem vessels.
KEYWORDS:
