The eastern Mediterranean Basin has a rich woody flora including Mediterranean-type vegetation and locally mesomorphic woody taxa. The wood anatomy of these taxa is crucially important to understand their nature and formation. Wood anatomy is also important in the Old World because of having wooden parts in archaeological sites.
A few wood anatomy books including the species of the eastern Mediterranean basin have been published. Wood Anatomy of Eastern Mediterranean Species aims to make a contribution to the wood anatomy world by presenting the wood anatomical characteristics of some species of the eastern Mediterranean basin, mainly of Turkey. Anatomical features are given together with some main results of the relating studies here. 106 species from 67 genera from mainly the Mediterranean region of Turkey are included in this book.
Wood Anatomy of Eastern Mediterranean Species has also IAWA (International Associate of Wood Anatomists) Index for each species, and an identification key for the 67 genera to help in the identification of the woods from this region.
