The extreme morphological variations and unclear boundaries between varieties can lead to the misleading identification of Ficus deltoidea Jack (Moraceae) varieties. [] Key Result The results reveal varying morphological characters in the type of leaf shape, size, surface texture, margin, midrib dichotomous, and petiole length. Moreover, variations in anatomical characters concerning the structures of the lamina, leaf epidermis, and midrib are also demonstrated.

Macro and micromorphological properties of genus Tephrosia Pers. (Fabaceae) and their taxonomical significance, at Aden governorate, Yemen
The macro and micromorphological characters show a high significant in taxonomic value for the separation between the two studied Tephrosia species.
Cluster analysis of leaf macro- and micro- morphological characteristics of Vicia L. (Fabaceae) and their taxonomic implication
Cluster analysis of macro- and micro-morphological characteristics of Vicia species was used to construct a phenogram illustrating therelationships between the studied taxa, and to build a key to identifyVicia species.
Comparative Morphological and Anatomical Studies on Morus Species (Moraceae) in Turkey
Comparative morphological and anatomical studies on three common Morus L. species found in Turkey may contribute to the taxonomy of Morus species for future work and be helpful in species diagnosis.
Morphological Characteristics of Different Ficus Species Found in Samaru-Zaria, Nigeria
The genus Ficus is an important genetic resource due to its high economic and nutritional values. It is also an important part of biodiversity in the rainforest ecosystem. The leaf shape is variable,
Comparative Foliar Structure of Vicia L. Species from China
Variation in leaf characters helped in overcoming the overlapping among harmful taxa and to build an artificial key to identify Vicia species.
Overall results showed that different individual plants were significantly varied in their floral numbers and reproductive output (pollinators and seeds) for both and male figs except for seed productions at Changkat Lobak (P = 0.067); Whilst there were significant different in the production of pollinators and Seeds by the figs among locations.
Genetical and morphological studies on Ficus trees
The rbcL was suggested as a plant barcode for its discriminatory power at high taxonomic levels than matK bar code for the evolutionary rate among the fifteen plant species of Ficus genus belongs to family moracea.
Ficus deltoidea: Review on Background and Recent Pharmacological Potential
F. deltoidea is studied for its numerous pharmacological properties such as antioxidant and antidiabetic properties, anti-inflammation and antinociceptive activity, wound healing activity, antiulcerogenic effect, antibacterial, anticancer and also it's potential as an uterotonic agent.
Total flavonoid content and antioxidant activity of tabat Barito ( Ficus deltoidea Jack ) on different plant organs and ages
The greenhouse study was conducted to determine the phytochemical compound, total flavonoid content (TFC), and antioxidant activity on different plant organs and ages. The tests were performed on


Leaf morphological variations and heterophylly in ficus deltoidea Jack (Moraceae)
Six varieties of Ficus deltoidea Jack (Moraceae) showed leaf morphological variations through quantitative measurement on different plant parts, and the heterophylly in leaf shape was detected in varieties angustifolia, bilobata, intermedia and trengganuensis, whilst six varieties ofF.
Morphological Phylogenetic Analysis of Seven Varieties of Ficus deltoidea Jack from the Malay Peninsula of Malaysia
This study is the first report to suggest a morphological phylogenetic framework for the seven varieties of Ficus deltoidea Jack (Ficus: Moraceae) from the Malay Peninsula of Malaysia, and indicated that F. del toidea is monophyletic.
Foliar epidermal anatomy of some ethnobotanically important species of genus Ficus Linn.
The study based on the micro characters of leaf epidermis of some species of Ficus collected from Pakistan revealed the many interesting epidermal features of leaves that have not previously been reported before and has been conducted first time.
Comparative leaf anatomy of the genus Hordeum L. (Poaceae)
Results of the study show that anatomical characteristics of the leaf blades vary between the taxa in both qualitative and quantitative values.
Leaf epidermis morphology of some Onosma (Boraginaceae) species from Turkey
The leaf epidermis of 14 Onosma L. species was examined by light and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and found that these characters are variable in the genus but usually they are stable within a species.
A comparison of the leaf anatomy of Ficus subpuberula, F. atricha and F. brachypoda (Moraceae)
The leaf anatomy of Ficus subpuberula, F. atricha and F. brachypoda are compared in order to facilitate identification of these partly sympatric species.
The Complex of Ficus deltoidea; A Recent Invasion of the Sunda Shelf
Clear evolutionary trends to very small figs and leaves and to dichotomous venation supply the evidence for the conclusions that the most reduced state F. deltoidea v. oleaefolia King represents most clearly the manner of speciation and geographical distribution prevalent in the genus.
Flora Malesiana precursor for the treatment of Moraceae 7: Ficus subgenus Urostigma
The sections of Ficus L. subg. Ficus are described and their Malesian species listed and a key to their identification is provided. One new subsection is established: Ficus subg. Ficus sect.
Leaf Epidermis Traits as Tools to Identify Solidago L. Taxa in Poland
As determined by discriminatory analysis, the most important traits distinguishing these taxa were the stomatal index of the adaxial epidermis, leaf thickness, features of the walls of epidermal cells, and the presence and features of trichomes.
