Abstract:

Preliminary pharmacognostical screening of crude drug as well as pet ether, chloroform, ethanol and water extracts were done on Dendrophthoe falcata (Loranthaceae). Dendrophthoe Falcata showed the presence of alkaloids, flavonoids, glycosides, reducing sugar, saponin, terpenoids, tannins and steroids. Morphological and anatomical study has been done with the aim to aid pharmacognostic and taxonomic species using light microscopy. WHO recommended physicochemical determination and authentic phytochemical procedures. Physicochemical, morphological and histological parameters evaluated in this article helps to standardize and authenticate the species Dendrophthoe falcata and possibly help to differentiate from its other species.
