Impact of Gas Flaring on leaf Anatomy of Carica papaya, Musa paradisiaca and Talinum Triangulare: A comparative Study.

a comparative morphological study for the leaf epidermal surface of Carica papaya, Musa paradisiaca and Talinum triangulare was carried out around a flow Station at Oben Village Edo State Nigeria. the aim of this research was to comparatively study and analyze the effect of Gas flaring on leaf anatomy of Carica papaya, Musa paradisiaca and Talinum Triangulare present in a gas flaring site and a non Gas flaring site. Qualitative and quantitative characteristics such as stomata type, epidermal type and cell shape patterns, epidermal cell length and width, number of epidermal cells per field of view, epidermal cell wall thickness and stomata length were studied. All measurement were made using a ligth microscope with a micrometer eyepiece. Results of the study showed that leaves were grossly affected by the flared gas when compared with plants from the non gas flaring site. The effect was seen in the cell almost fading, there were distortions or reduction in the number of stomata per unit area of the leaf Keywords: Gas flaring, caraca papaya, Musa paradisiaca, Talinum triangulare.
