The anatomy, palynology, morphology and distribution of the trichomes on the aerial parts of Salvia chrysophylla Stapf, an endemic species in Turkey, were studied in order to understand the usefulness of these characteristics for systematic purposes. Some anatomical characters such as (1-)2-24-rowed pith rays in roots, dorsiventral leaves, obviously larger upper epidermal cells, and two to three large vascular bundles in the center and two to four small subsidiary bundles in the wings of petiole provide information of taxonomical significance. Three main types of trichomes were observed on the stem, inflorescence axis, leaf and calyx surfaces of S. chrysophylla. They are peltate, capitate glandular and non-glandular. Capitate glandular and non-glandular trichomes were further subdivided into several kinds. Glandular trichomes are present in abundance on the inflorescence axis and calyx, but non-glandular ones were mainly situated on the leaf and stem. Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) studies on the pollen grains have revealed that they are oblate-spheroidal and their exine ornamentation is bireticulate-perforate.

CELEP, FERHAT; Kahraman, Ahmet; Atalay, Zeynep; Doğan, Musa (2011-02-01)
The anatomy, morphology and distribution of the trichomes on the aerial parts of Lamium truncatum Boiss. were studied in order to understand the usefulness of these characteristics for systematic purposes. L. truncatum is a Mediterranean element which grows on shady hedge banks, glades, Quercus coccifera L. macchie and forest at an altitude of 300-1650 m in the eastern part of the Mediterranean region of Turkey, western Syria, Palaestina and Israel. Some anatomical characters such as the distances of vascul...
Morphology, anatomy and systematics of the genus Salvia l. (Lamiaceae) in East and Southeast Anatolia, Turkey
Kahraman, Ahmet; Doğan, Musa; Department of Biology (2011)
This study aims to revise the genus Salvia L. in East and Southeast Anatolia in Turkey on the basis of macromorphological, anatomical, palynological, mericarp micro-morphological, ecological and numerical analysis. Towards achieving this goal, about 2500 specimens of Salvia were collected and examined during extensive field studies between July 2005 and June 2009. The materials collected by other researchers either from Turkey or abroad were also investigated. The results of the taxonomic revision show that...

Morphological, anatomical and palynological characteristics of Salvia glutinosa L. and S. staminea Montbret & Aucher ex Bentham and their taxonomic importance are presented. Their expanded description and phenology are also given. The features of stems, leaves, calyces, corolla and nutlets have been found to be significant to distinguish the species. Mesophyll structure, distribution of stomata on upper epidermis, size of stomata on lower epidermis, shape of vascular structure in midrib, and number of vascu...
