Comparative Anatomical Study between Typha domengensis and Phragmites communis


Both of the species Typha domengensis and Phragmites communis among the mostimportant plant endemic in flora of Iraq from monocotyledon.Due to the similarity of the two species with each other in many morphological characteristicssuch as the environment where they live and the form of leaves and type of leaf venation andtype of stomata….ets, also both of species belong to monocots plant therefore this researchwork was conducted find anatomical differences that have the same as taxonomic value tohelp distinguishing between both species under study.Through this research, we found great importance to the anatomical characteristics whichwe reached by studying the roots, stems and leaves sections for both species and throughthese characteristics we were able to compare between the two species studied scientificallyand objectively.
