Histopathological aspects of orange and guava are studied. The rotten orange pericarp shows distorted epidermis. The outer pericarp cell layers show spores of pathogenic fungi. The general cellular organisation is disturbed. Oil ducts get collapsed and the lignin deposits on the walls of tracheids are degenerated. In guava, small and large cavities are formed in the outer pericarp. The most interesting feature was the presence of very thick-walled sclereids in the pulp of rotten guava.

Structure, ontogeny and distribution of sclereids in the pericarp of seven species of mimosaceae are studied. Their occurrence is recorded in the epidermis hypodermis, mesocarp and endocarp. They may be macrosclereids or brachysclereids. Their structure and ontogeny are described and their taxonomic utility is pointed out.

The structure of the stipe and basal, middle and apical regions of the pod is described. The older stipe shows secondary growth as in a dicotyledonous stem. The stipe at its junction with the valves shows three vascular bundles, one large and two small, arranged in a triangular manner, with 3–5 lateral bundles in
