The present publication provides a comprehensive wood anatomical survey of woods of Indian tree species of the family Anacardiaceae. Thirtyfive species belonging to 19 genera are described as per the feature list of IAWA. Intrusive fibre cavities and perforated ray cells have been reported in Holigarna arnottiana and Pistacia terebinthus respectively. Two species, Choerospondias axillaris and Rhus hookeri, lacked helical thickening despite being ring-porous. Most tribes of the Anacardiaceae appear to be heterogeneous wood anatomically, except Semecarpeae which are homogeneous. The tribes Mangiferae and Semecarpeae are quite similar and may be placed together. Interesting findings were made regarding Indian species of Rhus, which can be divided into two groups. It is suggested to recognise Rhus Group II as a separate section. The ecological trends suggest that anatomical differentiation exists between tropical and temperate species as well as deciduous and evergreen species.
