Differences Between Sclerenchyma Fibres and Sclereids.

Sclerenchyma tissues offer mechanical support due to the lignin properties. The Sclerenchyma is further divided into fibres and sclereids. The difference between fibres and sclereids are:

Fibres: Fibres are elongated, unbranched and have tapering end walls. The fibres originate from meristematic cells.

Sclereids: Sclereids are broad with blunt end walls. Sclereids may be branched or unbranched. The Sclereids are formed due to the thickening of parenchyma cells.
