    • Abstract


      Vein-endings, free vein-endings, isolated vein-endings and isolated tracheids are discussed and distinguished. Vein-endings whether simple or branched may or may not terminate in terminal tracheids. The nature of vein-endings is uniseriate inSolanum species while multiseriate inCestrum species. Tracheids at the vein-tips increase cell diameter and are variable in size, shape and orientation. Tracheids at junction of free arms of the veins are observed inWithania somnifera Isolated vein-endings, isolated free vein-endings and isolated tracheids are noticed inCestrum diurnum, C. nocturnum andSolanum surattense.
