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.
