    • Abstract


      Various types of stomatal abnormalities like persistent stomatal initials, single guard cells, degenerated guard cells and contiguous stomata with contiguity in different directions were recorded due to the treatment of different growth substances. Growth substances also altered the stomatal size, epidermal cell size, stomatal frequency, index and length-to-breadth ratio. It seems that the effect of these substances starts from the stomatal ontogeny and continue up to the last phase of development leading to such variations.
