AbstractStomata density and density was compared between tissue cultures and greenhouse plants of 6 Annona species. In vitro grown Annona bahiensis, Annona glabra, Annona squamosa and Rolinia silvatica had greater stomatal density and thinner epidermal layers than greenhouse plants. No differences were found between greenhouse and in vitro grown plants of Annona coriacea.
