About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and Chinese

Anatomical Properties and Colorized Illustrations of Important Commercial Wood Species from Hunan in China provides fundamental information about wood identification, as well as wood anatomical properties of 50 important commercial wood species (24 families, 38 genera) from Hunan Province, China. The first chapter introduces materials and methods. Chapter II is about the measurement and calculation of wood stereological characteristics. Chapter III is about identification and utilization of wood: compiling wood macrostructure and microstructure keys in softwood (5 families, 10 genera, and 16 species) and hardwood (19 families, 28 genera, and 34 species).

For each tree species, the Latin name, English name, commercial name, trees and distribution, wood macroscope structures, wood microscope structures, wood stereological characteristics, wood specimen, wood machining properties and wood utilization are described in detail, and 308 exquisite colorized photographs of solid wood and three sections of microscope features are included. Therefore, Anatomical Properties and Colorized Illustrations of Important Commercial Wood Species from Hunan in China is well-illustrated, intuitive, clear and convenient for comparison. Stereological characteristics of wood are used in wood identification, which give new content to wood name identification and provide an instructive guide for the wood industry. Chaper IV gives a detailed overview of wood identification, such as purpose, preparations, principles, methods and steps as well as the timber classifying rules.
