The root anatomical features of Urginea indica (Hyacinthaceae) in different accessions of Kashmir, Ranganathittu, Yarkad, Seethampundi and Kerala were investigated. These specimens were collected during April may 2013 & 2014. For anatomical investigation, sections of the roots were cut mannually with a razor blade. The root anatomy of the species display the common properties of monocotyledons. Variations have been noticed in by the development of good number of vascular arrangements in vascular bundles , pith size, cortical layers and epidermal thickenings . These features are of evolutionary significance. Among the five populations selected Seethampundi showed high evolution in vascular tissue and shows large pith. Population from Kashmir showed primitiveness in having small stele with less developed Xylem. In this work we are trying to correlate the vascular development as well as rhizodermal development in roots based on their geographical location.
