Histomorphological investigations were carried out on six taxa of the family Fabaceae: Tamarindus indica, Danielia oliveri, Afzelia africana, Piliostigma reticulatum and Detarium microcarpum. The parameters investigated include variations in their density, vessel, fibre, ray, parenchyma and tracheid. Based on their density, the economic potential of the timber are suggested. Fibre/vessel ratios are used for accessing the degree of specialization of the species studied.
