    • Abstract


      Studies on leaves of the genera belonging to the two sub-groups: theLyonia and theGaultheria of the tribe Andromedeae were investigated anatomically. In both the groups there are clear vein ending types and also sclereid idioblasts confined to each taxa. Their morphological features could be regarded as diagnostic criteria of taxonomic value and may also serve as an adjunct character in the relationship of species or groups of species within a genus.
