Studies on the Structure of Leaf Epidermis of Chinese Anthemideae

Zhang Xin-ying, K. Napp-Zinn and K. Hangst   

Abstract: This paper presents a survey of the types and distributions of the stomata and trichomes of leaves from Chinese 98 species (belonging to 25 genera) of Anthemideae. The results are shown as follows: 1. The types of trichome are specific for the taxonomical characters of a grex in one case, for a genus in another, or for a subgenus, section or series elsewhere. 2. Polocytic, hemicytic and helicocytic stomatal complexes fit best for the characterization of groups of species on different levels between series and genus. 3. The sizes of epidermis cell, the lengths of stomatal guard cells and of the terminal cells of them are only quantitative characters, but not of much significances in systematics.

Key words: Chinese Anthemideae, Epidermis structure
