The current study was conducted for pharmacognostical study of Glycyrrhiza glabra L. root for the authentication and identification. Observation of morphological or macroscopic characters and powder microscopic study was conducted with the help of reagent under the microscope. Macroscopic and microscopy study revealed some peculiar characters such as -10-15 layer of cork, numerous starch grains, prismatic crystal of calcium oxalate, secondary vascular bundle, lignified phloem fiber and medullary rays. The findings examined from the present study will assist in authentication and identification of the medicinally important plant Glycyrrhiza glabra L. In addition to this, macroscopic, microscopic and powder study aspect may work as a main attributes for standardization and developing the pharmacopeia standards.
