Bamboos are considered to be among the fastest growing plant 011 earth. The anatomical properties were studied due to their relationship with strength and physical properties. Anatomical studies were done 011 two species namely Dendrocalamus asper and D. giganteus. The objectives of this study were to determine the anatomical properties of D. asper and D. giganteus, arrangement differences in the anatomical properties between radial region (outer, middle and inner region) and height level (bottom, middle and top position) among D. asper and D. giganteus and distribution of vascular bundles and fibre morphology between radial regions and height level. Dendrocalamus species possess type IV for their vascular bundle. Anatomical properties measured were fibre length, fibre diameter, fibre lumen diameter, fibre wall thickness, runkel's ratio, distribution of vascular bundle and vascular bundle width. Two-way analysis of variance (A.NOV A) of anatomical properties showed that Dendrocalamus asper and Dendrocalamus giganteus showed difference in vascular bundle width. Fibre morphology of D.asper are no significantly different. However in D.giganteus significant difference in term of fibre length, fibre diameter and fibre lumen diameter were observed.
