Nitraria retusa (Forssk.) Asch. was subjected to botanical and chemical studies and compared against four selected taxa of Zygophyllaceae viz., Fagonia arabica L., Peganum harmala L., Tribulus terrestris L. and Zygophyllum album L.f. The botanical section included the study of morphological and anatomical characters of both vegetative and reproductive organs using LM and scanning electron microscope. The chemical section included a detailed study of the flavonoids present in N. retusa. Twelve… CONTINUE READING
