Caesalpinia crista (Fabaceae) is a moderately size deciduous tree, growing wild throughout the deciduous forest of India. It is commonly used in day to day life.In present investigation an attempt has been made for the pharmacognostical standardization and phytochemical evaluation of Caesalpinia crista leaves. Thepharmacognostical evaluation comprises of detailed macroscopy, powdered microscopy, fluorescence analysis, quantitative microscopy and physical constantssuch as ash and extractive values. The leaves extracts were subjected to preliminary phytochemical screening. The data obtained in present study will serve asvaluable tool for identification, authentication and detection of adulterants, standardization and quality control of the drug. The developed technique will also beuseful for the standardization of formulations containing Caesalpinia crista.
