The occurrence and level of specialization of vesse ls in 70 species representing 12 genera of Eriocaulaceae are presented. In alI species of Eriocaulaceae and in alI parts of the plant examined, vessels with simple perforations have been identified . Correlations between level of specialization of vessel members and ecological conditi ons are reported for species from diverse habitats and species with distinct differences in habit.

The evolutionary position of these families has been regarded as close to Eriocaulaceae.
