Abstract


The vessel elements in four genera and nine species have been investigated. The vessel elements in the stem of Cuphea, Woodfordia, Lawsonia and Lagerstroemia exhibit variation in their length and breadth in the different species or in the plant of same species. The minimum length of vessel element was recorded in Cuphea ignea (285.6 ?m) and the maximum length of vessel element was recorded in Lagerstroemia microcarpa (714 ?m) while minimum diameter of vessels was recorded in Cuphea ignea (14.2 ?m) and maximum diameter of vessel element was recorded in Lagerstroemia reginae (71.4 ?m) The perforation plates are mostly simple, however in certain taxa both simple and scalariform perforation plates are occurs. The position of perforations are terminal sub-terminal, the tails are recorded in many taxa, and the lateral wall are pitted .The vestured pits are characteristic of family Lythraceae.
