Sumit Kumar Pathak Suniti Chaudhary and Prasanjit Mukherjee


Ipomoea quamoclit belongs to the family morning glory, More than one third of the species are included in to major genera Ipomoea (650) and Convoluvlus (250) under Convolvulaceae. In India 63 species of Ipomoea were reported where as 19 species were reported from Jharkhand. In the current communication an endevor is made to study morpho taxonomy, antomy of Ipomoea quamoclit. It was observed that flower of Ipomoea quamoclit is the small, 1-2 in axillary cymes sepals persistent, equal enlarged in fruit. In anatomical study the primary vascular bundle of the stem consists of bicollateral. The cambium undergoes differential activity on opposing sides of the stem, while a concentric pattern results from the activity of a discontinuous supernumerary cambium.
