P. ovata (Plantago ovata), P. lanceolata (Plantago lanceolata), P.coronopus, (Plantago coronopus) .etc.
An experiment was set up to study the effect of different soil variables on the size and shape of stomata of Plantago species. In order to determine the effect of soil variables on the size and shape of stomata of Plantago ovata, P. lanceolata and P. coronopus, the length and width of definite number of stomata of each species was recorded with the help of stage micrometer and occular from each soil type. After that, the mean of the length and width of stomata from each species was obtained in each soil condition. The data was than subjected to statistical an alysis. On the basis of the above results, it can be concluded that the organic soil is the best one for the growth of Plantago species. The wideness of stomata in organic soil might have a definite and positive role in altering the rate of photosynthesis, respiration, transpiration etc. giving a signal for the increase in productivity of the plants.
