Karyology, morphology and anatomy studies of medicinal plant Salvia nemorosa in the North East of Iran

Gholamreza Bagheri, Seyed Ali Mousavi, Seyed Mohammad Mousavi

In this study, the karyotype, morphology and anatomy of the petiole and stem the herb Salvia nemorosa was discussed. After collecting and identifying plant , it conducted qualitative and quantitative traits, then, Very thin slices prepared and the samples were stained. To prepare a karyotype, three methods were used which method use of colchicine was more effective. S. nemorosa covered with soft short glandular trichome with low-density and dense non glandular trichome. The general shape of petiole, crescent-shaped, 5-bundle sheath of the center and 2 bundle sheath on either side there. Circular stem epidermis cells, Pith parenchyma cell with 40 to 50 layers of cells polygonal, karyological results showed that the chromosome number of S. nemorosa (2n = 14) with karyotype formula is 4 sm + 3m.


Key words: Salvia nemorosa, anatomy, morphology, karyotype, polygonal

Entomology and Applied Science Letters is an international peer reviewed publication which publishes scientific research & review articles related to insects that contain information of interest to a wider audience, e.g. papers bearing on the theoretical, genetic, agricultural, medical and biodiversity issues. Emphasis is also placed on the selection of comprehensive, revisionary or integrated systematics studies of broader biological or zoogeographical relevance. Papers on non-insect groups are no longer accepted. In addition to full-length research articles and reviews, the journal publishes interpretive articles in a Forum section, Short Communications, and Letters to the Editor. The journal publishes reports on all phases of medical entomology and medical acarology, including the systematics and biology of insects, acarines, and other arthropods of public health and veterinary significance.

Call for Papers
Entomology and Applied Science Letters supports the submission of entomological papers that contain information of interest to a wider reader groups e. g. papers bearing on taxonomy, phylogeny, biodiversity, ecology, systematic, agriculture, morphology. The selection of comprehensive, revisionary or integrated systematics studies of broader biological or zoogeographical relevance is also important. Distinguished entomologists drawn from different parts of the world serve as honorary members of the Editorial Board. The journal encompasses all the varied aspects of entomological research. This has become the need felt in scientific research due to the emphasis on intra-, inter-, and multi-disciplinary approach.
