The wood anatomy of 132 species of the genera Abies, Cathaya, Cedrus, Keteleeria, Larix, Nothotsuga, Picea, Pinus, Pseudolarix, Pseudotsuga and Tsuga was studied to determine the elements that characterise the xylem of each genus and discuss possible groupings by wood anatomy for comparison with clades established by molecular phylogeny.

Changes in cell wall components and hygroscopic properties of Pinus radiata caused by heat treatment. European Journal of Wood and Wood Products. 79:851-861.
After thermal modification at 210 °C using the Thermowood method, changes in Pinus radiata D. Don wood cell wall components and hygroscopicity were studied for subsequent comparison with recently felled wood of the same species in samples from the same region of provenance (Basque Country, Spain). To this end, samples were […]

Using lenses attached to a smartphone as a macroscopic early warning tool in the illegal timber trade, in particular for CITES-listed species. Forests. 11: 1147.
Wood anatomy is a key discipline as a tool for monitoring the global timber trade, particularly for wood listed in protected species conventions such as Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Flora and Fauna (CITES). One of the main barriers to reducing illegal trafficking of protected species is ensuring that customs officials with appropriate […]

The hygroscopicity and thermodynamic properties of Pinus sylvestris L. wood from a coffin allegedly holding the remains of famous Spanish author Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra (1547–1616) were studied using the 15 °C and 35 °C isotherms fitted to the Guggenheim–Anderson–de Boer model and comparing them with the isotherms of recently felled wood of the same species […]

Characterisation of Pinus canariensis C.Sm. ex DC. sawn timber from reforested trees on the island of Tenerife, Spain. Forests. 11: 769.
Canary Island pine (Pinus canariensis C.Sm. ex DC) is a species endemic to the Canary Islands (Spain) that was for centuries overexploited for its wood and resin. Due to the state of the pine forest, more than 10,000 hectares were reforested in the middle of the 20th century. Now, under the silvicultural management plan, thinning operations have allowed Canary Island […]

A comparison was made of the hygroscopicity, cell wall chemical composition and crystallinity of recently peeled poplar (Populus spp.) wood and wood of the same species subjected to repeated cycles (20, 60 and 80) of vacuum/pressure (85 kPa/600 kPa) and soaking in an autoclave followed by oven drying. The 15 and 35 °C sorption isotherms were obtained using […]

Changes were evaluated in cell wall components, hygroscopicity, and thermodynamic properties of Pinus sylvestris L. wood that had been in contact with salt (NaCl) for 300 years in a former saltworks storehouse in Gerri de la Sal (Lérida, Spain), comparing it with recently felled wood (new wood) of the same species […]

Particleboard panels are normally manufactured in three layers of different sized particles of wood. One of the most important properties of particleboard is internal bond. This study determined the thickness and the physical properties of swelling, water absorption and density of 300 type P2 particleboards, as well as tensile strength perpendicular to the plane of the board […]

The hygroscopicity and thermodynamic properties of Pinus canariensis wood buried in volcanic ash, dating from 1100 BC, were studied and compared with recently felled juvenile and mature wood of the same species. The sorption isotherms were obtained by the saturated salt method at 35 and 50 ºC. The isotherms were fitted using the Guggenheim–Anderson–de Boer model […]

The hygroscopic properties of Pinus pinea L. wood at 35 and 50ºC were investigated by the dynamic vapour sorption (DVS) technique. The sorption kinetic behaviour was studied through the parallel exponential kinetics (PEK) model, which is subdivided into a fast and a slow process. The parameters obtained by PEK were interpreted based on the Kelvin-Voigt (KV) model to […]
