MORAES, Pedro Luís Rodrigues de  and  PAOLI, Adelita Aparecida Sartori. Epiderm and leaf venation pattern of Lauraceae species. Acta Bot. Bras. [online]. 1999, vol.13, n.1, pp.87-97. ISSN 0102-3306.

The epidermal and leaf venation pattern of eophylls and nomophylls of Ctyptocarya moschata Nees, Endlicheria paniculata (Spreng.) MacBride, and Ocotea catharinensis Mez are described. Both C. moschata and O. catharinensis presented a pronounced variation in the rate of ondulation in the anticlinal cell walls as well as in the minor venation of nomophylls. This makes it difficult to use these features for taxonomical purposes.

Keywords : Cryptocarya moschata; Endlicheria paniculata; Ocotea catharinensis; epiderm; leaf venation; Lauraceae.
