Abstract

Acanthaceae is an angiosperm plant family under the order Lamiales, comprising at least 4000 species of either tropical or subtropical. Species of Acanthaceae can be found in various habitats and they have various morphological characteristics and geographical distribution patterns. However, the information on the anatomy of Acanthaceae is still meagre till to date. The objective of this study was to identify the type of trichomes present on both adaxial and abaxial epidermal surfaces of sepals and petals of some selected Acanthaceae species in Peninsular Malaysia. The study involved fresh samples collected from the field, preparation of voucher specimens, epidermal peel techniques with observation under light and scanning electron microscopes. Thirty types of trichomes were found in this study, 23 types were present on the petal epidermal surface and 17 types were observed on the sepal epidermal surface. Types of trichomes found included simple unicellular and multicellular, capitate and peltate glandular and armed trichomes. The presence of trichomes on sepal and petal surfaces proven to have taxonomic value to differentiate and identify species in Acanthaceae. Information on the morphological trichome characteristics found in the study is a new finding in anatomical features of Acanthaceae.
