The endocarp of Celtis australis L. with hyrcanian forests of Northern Iran and arid mountains of Northern Africa ecotypes were studied considering macro and micro morphologic characteristics, using binocular and Scanning Electron Microscope. The aim of this research was to evaluate the endocarp diversity in different ecological conditions. The results showed that Celtis australis L. is bigger, softer, with holes with 10 micron diameter in Iran; but, the African Celtis australis L. endocarp is smaller and rougher having two enclosure circles and without hole in outer layer. The total results show endocarp characteristics is dependent to the ecological conditions, and is coutinuesly changing with its changes.
