Morphological and Anatomical Characteristics of Camellia sinensis (L.) Kuntze from Two Different Localities
- Morphological and anatomical characteristics of Camellia sinensis (L.) Kuntze belonging to family Theaceae were studied at Department of Botany, University of Mandalay. The specimens were collected from Naung Cho Township of Northern Shan State and Mogok Township of Mandalay Region from June to October, 2017. The morphological and anatomical characteristics of leaves, stems and roots were studied, described, discussed and their photographs and photomicrographs were also presented. In morphological characteristics, the sizes of leaves, petioles and the numbers of petals were showed variable from one locality to another. The anatomical characteristics showed the differences in thickness of cell layers, the numbers and sizes of vascular bundles of leaves, stems and roots. The sclereids were observed in the ground tissues of petioles and midribs. The vascular bundles of stems were collateral type and roots were radial type and polyarch. The morphological and anatomical characteristics are useful in species confirmation and certain identification.
