The present study tends to investigate the micromorphology,
anatomy and palynology of fourdesertspecies of Salvia
in center of Iran. For comparative micromorphology investigation, the
shape of leaf, bracts and calyx were studied with SEM. To conduct the
comparative study of anatomy characters, sections from stem were prepared
using microtome and differential staining. In this part of investigation,
arrangement of vessel and arrangement of tissues in stem were studied.
For the palynology study, too, a comparative investigation on the species
showed, the pollen was problate spheroidal, hexacolpate, bireticulate
and semi- tectate or tectate. Finally, micromorphology study, is useful
for identification of studied species.
