MORPHO-ANATOMIC INVESTIGATION OF VEGETATIVE ORGANS OF WATER AVENS (GEUM RIVALE L.)Abstract
Species of Geum L. genus (avens) of Rosaсeae L. family belong to perspective sources of medicinal plant raw material for obtaining medicines with the anti-microbic and anti-inflammatory action. They are characterized by such an important feature as the presence of biologically active substances, particularly the polyphenol compounds. According to the aim of present work, morphologic and anatomic investigation of leaves, stems, rhisomes with roots of Geum rivale L. of Rosaсeae L. family has been carried out. In order to obtain the data by scientific investigation, the morphologic and anatomic methods of analysis of medicinal plants have been used. In the process of our investigation the diagnostic features of vegetative organs have been determined. The results of morpho-anatomic features can be used in developing analytic and regulatory records intended for incorporation of the additional sources of medicinal herbal raw materials in the practical field. Research of anatomical structure of aboveground and underground parts of G. rivale L with the identification of diagnostic features may be needed during the development of the relevant sections of quality control methods.
