Abstract

A rapid technique has been developed for studying the morphology and anatomy of leaves of forage grasses. It has been used to compare the leaf dimensions, numbers of structural elements, tissue proportions, stomatal and unicellular hair counts, and mesophyll cell number and size in one variety of Lolium multiflorum Lam. and L. perenne L. There were large differences between these species in leaf dimensions, number of structural elements, and in stomatal and unicellular hair counts, but little difference in the relative proportion of different tissues and in cell size.
