Jatropha tanjorensis is one of the 9 species in Tamil Nadu. This paper deals with the micro morphological studies carried out on in the leaves of Jatropha tanjorenesis one of the WHO Accepted Parameters for identification of medicinal plants; Taxonomy, Distribution and Medicinal Uses of Jatropha L.
