Abstract: This study aimed to evaluate the effect of changing light spectral quality, using colored shading nets, on the characteristics of tamarind (Tamarindus indica L.) leaf anatomy to obtain more conducive plants. Tamarind seedlings were grown under blue, white, black and red shade nets, in a completely randomized design. After 90 days, the leaves were evaluated anatomically and micromorphologically. Plants grown under white net had greater palisade parenchyma, abaxial epidermis cells and midrib thicknesses. Better results for adaxial epidermis and leaf blade were observed under white and blue nets. Higher stomatal density was obtained under blue and red nets. Tamarindus indica leaves present anatomical plasticity in response to changes in the radiation spectrum. In view of these results, the white and blue nets can be recommended to obtain plants more efficient to planting.
