About this book

Introduction

This atlas presents the information on fiber identification necessary for a fiber analyst in the field of pulp and paper. The book discusses the structure of the raw materials and the features used for the species identification in pulp. It describes the identification of 117 fiber species. Of these, 83 are wood fibers and 34 are of nonwood origin. The tree species are from all five continents, 29 species from Eurasia, 38 from North America, and 16 from the southern hemisphere and the tropics. Informative micrographs, identification tables, and distribution maps help the species differentiation.
This richly illustrated book can be recommended to everyone interested in fiber identification.
