Epidermal structure and ontogeny of stomata are described for ten species or varieties of Cruciferae. The mature stomata are typically anisocytic. Their development is of the mesogenous trilabrate type. The spiral sequence of divisions in the meristemoid may be clockwise or anticlockwise. Very often the neighbouring cells divide and form successive generations of stomata which become arranged in groups. Some theoretical implications of the study are also discussed.
