Abstract—The Stomatal diversity (size, shapes, types and orientation) in the foliar epidermis has great value in plant systematics studies. The present paper deals with comparative study of stomatal structure of six species of Cassia which are used by rural people of South West Bengal as medicine. Leaf epidermal studies mainly stomatal studies of the 6 species of Cassia of family Caesalpiniaceae viz., Cassia alata L., Cassia fistula L., Cassia occidentals L., Cassia siamea Lamk., Cassia sophera L., Cassia tora L. were made. Leaf clearings and cuticular preparations were examined with light microscopy. The study is based on the presence and absence of stomata, types of stomata present in the epidermal surface, stomatal count/cm2, stomatal index and epidermal cell shape. The size and shapes of stomata are also varied in the tree species which bear larger size of stomata in respect of other habits and habitats. Three types of stomata were observed viz. paracytic, anisocytic and anomocytic. Among these 3 types of stomata the paracytic type of stomata are more common and than other.
