Studies on morpho- taxonomy anatomical and Palynology of Ipomoea carnea Jacq growing in Jharkhand, India.

Prasanjit Mukherjee, Sumit Kumar Pathak, Jyoti Kumar


The current paper deals with the morpho-taxonomy, anatomy and pollen studies of Ipomoea carnea a member family Convolvulaceae. This is one of the important invasive plants spreaded throughout the nation as weed1, 2. It has been also reported from all the parts of Jharkhand3. Owing to unique charter of its survival in land as well as water the current study has been under taken.
