Wood Structure in Plant Biology and Ecology.
Wood Structure in Plant Biology and Ecology
Edited by Pieter Baas, Giovanna Battipaglia, Veronica De Micco, Frederic Lens, and Elisabeth Wheeler
Research and review papers explore methods for analyzing and characterizing wood structure, effects of the environment on wood structure, and other aspects of wood structure that are important in plant biology and ecology (rather than, for example, construction or energy). The topics include an overview of the hydraulic systems in early land plants, cellular and subcellular changes in cambium, visualizing wood anatomy in three dimensions with high-resolution X-ray micro-tomography, fire influences on Pinus halepensis: wood responses close and far from scar, plastic growth response of European beech provenances to dry site conditions, and evaluating the wood anatomical and dendoecological potential of arctic dwarf shrub communities.
