ABSTRACT
A pharmacognostical studies of a plant enables the scientist for proper identification of a drug and removes adulteration and provide a basis for authentication of crude drug. By looking the high traditional use of crude drugs the present work and investigation of the plant drug Pterospermum Suberifolium Linn. and undertaken for research. Pterospermum Suberifolium Linn belonging to family sterculiaeace. It is moderate size or large tree with woody stem. Even though the plant has gained scientific importance recently, there is a need for pharmacognostical; standardization. Hence in present work the leaf part of the plant were subjected to various microscopical and physicochemical evaluations. In the microscopic studies different cell structure and arrangement were studied and physicochemical evaluation moisture content, ash valueand extractive values were studied.
