The macroscopical studies revealed the morphological character of different parts of plant. The microscopical studies revealed the presence of lamina, mesophyll tissue, venation pattern, anomocytic stomata, Midrib, xylem, phloem and glandular trichomes etc. Various physicochemical parameters such as ash values, extractive values, foreign organic matter, and moisture content were determined. The other parameters observed are also useful for the future identification of the plant and serves as a standard monograph for identification and evaluation of plant.
