This paper is a contribution toward the knowlege of wood anatomy of eight species of trees used for handicraft goods produced in the state of Michoacan (Mexico): Gyrocarpus jatrophifolius, Bocconia arborea, Lysiloma acapulcensis, Lysiloma microphylla, Platymiscium lasiocarpum, Cedrela dugesii, Cordia elaeagnoides, Ehretia latifolia. Descriptions of esthetic aspects and of wood structure are made. Statistical univariate analysis of measured elements is applied. Wood characters of the trees are correlated with their real and potential use.

    The article tackles the details of wood anatomy and function. The three parts of a tree are roots, which secure the tree in the ground, trunk, that transports the solution called sap from the roots to the leaves and leaves which absorb carbon dioxide from the air. Below the bark is a thin layer...

    Plant transpiration is strongly constrained by hydraulic architecture, which determines the critical threshold for cavitation. Because species vary greatly in vulnerability to cavitation, hydraulic limits to transpiration and stomatal conductance have not generally been incorporated into...

    The study aims at investigating the impact of ivy (Hedera helix L.) on the growth and on some wood anatomical characteristics of black alder trees. Ivy-hosting and non-hosting black alder have a similar wood anatomy in terms of qualitative properties. However, in ivy-hosting trees tangential and...

    The effect of thermal and electrical conductivities of fifty-two selected Nigerian timbers was analyzed. The results showed that C.vogelli and G. arborea with thermal conductivity of 10.06 x10-2µmoh/cm had the ODDs of 36.6 x10-2g.cm-3 and 40.3 x10-2g.cm-3 respectively; G. kola and C. barteri...
