Ficus nervosa Heyne ex Roth is a medium sized evergreen tree belongs to Moraceae family. It occurs in streams in valleys of deciduous forests. Morphological and microscopical examination of Ficus nervosa leaf was carried out using the reported methods in standard texts. Physical constants of crude drugs like loss on drying, ash values and extractive values were determined. Leaf constants like stomatal number, stomatal index, pallisade ratio, vein islet numbers and vein termination numbers were also determined to establish the standards.
