Abstract: This paper show the detailed characters of stomatal apparatus of supra terraneous stem by comparing and observing five species of Equisetaceae from the different habitats under SEM for the first time. They are Equisetum arvense, E. pratense,E. sylvaticum, E. fluviatile, Hippochaete hyemale. It provides intuitive and three-dimensional pictures and tentatively discusses the Equisetaceae’s significance of systematics and ecology from the perspective of comparative morphology.

Key words: Equisetaceae, stomatal apparatus, SEM
