Zubaidah A. Lateef Ismail


In this research, Tagetes erecta (L.) was studied anatomically. Epidermal anatomical features of stem and leaf was described, in addition to the anatomical features of root, stem, petiole and leaf for the plant which belonging to family Asteraceae.  The results showed that some of the anatomical characters have good taxonomic value.


Tagetes erecta; Asteraceae; Anatomy; cortical cavities.
