The present work provides a comparative account of cytological effect of mutagens on two plant models Pisum sativum L. and Hordeum vulgare L. Both UV radiations and chemical mutagens induce chromosomal anomalies at various dose and concentrations respectively. Varieties of anomalies were seen in H. vulgare as compared to P. sativum. In general, the anomalies increased as the concentration of the mutagen increased.
