Abstract

Differing grain patterns, fibril angles, internal defects, and reaction wood are of great importance both for the strength and quality of the final product and for esthetic uses of wood. There are many patterns in this context; for the purpose of simplicity, they have been discussed as six types in this chapter. Certainly the divisions could be much finer but in most cases genetic studies have either not been carried out, or are just now underway.
