About this book

This richly illustrated book presents the prestigious xylarium of the Royal Museum for Central Africa and the research foci of the wood biology laboratory.

The oldest samples date back to the turn of the 19th century to the 20th century. For more than 100 years, the xylarium grew: today, in terms of size, it is second in the world only to that of Madison, Wisconsin (USA).

This volume of the `RMCA Collections' series will appeal as much to professionals as to amateurs, for it covers the most specialised aspects in their entirety. An initiation to the structure and life of wood, a presentation of the collection's history, and an introduction to planetary and African biomes offer the reader sumptuous landscapes, iridescent xylarium specimens, microscopic slides and other explanatory diagrams.
