Autecological studies on Citrullus colocynthis species in Saudi Arabia

Abstract


Many plant species may be used for the production of herbal preparations containing phytochemicals with significant anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory capacities and health benefits. Citrullus Colocynthis spp is among the most known for the medical plants. The aim of our approach was to study the morphological and taxonomical parameters for Citrullus Colocynthis in the Saudi Arabia. This result of this study affords a chemotaxonomic significance for Citrullus Colocynthis species collected from various catchment areas in Saudi Arabia on the basis of the evidences from morphometric and phytochemical studies. From this study we have concluded that geographical distribution of the species occurs in the Saudi Arabia.
