About this book


------------------------------------------------------------ The second edition has been completely revised and has in- corporated significant changes that have occured in wood anatomy over the past years. Richly illustrated with light and scanning electron micrographs, Comparative Wood Anatomy clearly introduces dicotyledon wood in terms of cell types and their variations, pertinent literature, taxonomic dis- tribution of features, terminology, and methods for prepara- tion. From reviews of the previous edition: "In synthesis, this book presents itself as an immensely valuable expos on comparative wood anatomy and its bearing on systematic, ecological and evolutionary aspects of dicotyledon wood." (Wood Science and Technology) "This book is recommended to all who are interested in a modern, stimulating, competent, and well illustrated work." (Holzforschung)
