The Amaranthus viridis Linn. (Family Amaranthaceae) plant was studied to determine the various parameters for pharmacognostical standards. The present investigation deals with the report on macro and microscopical, vein islet and vein termination numbers, palisade ratio, stomatal index (upper and lower surfaces of the leaf) and different chemical parameters have been determined. These findings will be useful towards establishing pharmacognostic standards on identification, purity, quality and classification of the plant, which is gaining relevance in plant drug research.
Key words: Amaranthus viridis Linn., pharmacognostical standards, macro and microscopical, chemical parameters.
