    • Abstract


      The abnormalities in morphology, number, size and position of subsidiary cells, stomatal complexes and guard cells in the leaf epidermis ofSorghum vulgare Pers. have been reported. The subsidiary cells per stomatal complex range from two to four. Normally, subsidiary cells do not arch over the poles of a stoma, but in some cases they cap the poles. Nuclear degradation has also been described in the guard cells.
