Morpho-Anatomical and Ecological Studies on Endemic of Fritillaria oranensis Pomel. from the Mounts of Tessala (Western Algeria)
Fritillaria oranensis (Liliaceae) was described in 1874
by pomel from Algeria. Plant samples have been collected from the
mount of Tessala (Sidi-Bel-Abbes). The morphological features of
various organs of the plant are described in detail. In the
morphological part of the study, features of various organs of the
plants such as stem and leaf were determined and illustrated.
Ecological studies provide information about the physical and
chemical structure of soil types in Tessala Mountain. The aim of this
original investigation is to put forth ecological and anatomical
features of these species for the first time, but at the same time given
detailed account of the morphological characteristics of the stem and
leaf of Fritillaria oranensis.
