Book Description

31 Mar 2008 3540325239 978-3540325239 1st ed. 2006. Corr. 2nd printing 2008

This atlas gives a unique assemblage of microscopic slides of wood anatomy and of the respective species in nature and demonstrates the reaction of stem anatomy to environments in which plants form woody stems. It provides insight into the evolution of wood, to the variation of wood anatomy in response to climate and disturbances, and it gives an introduction to the methodology used to study wood. Special attention has been given to the unique feature of secondary growth. In color throughout and with more than 700 both beautiful and instructive illustrations, the wide-ranging scientific content of this book makes it both attractive and unique.

Product Description


From the reviews:

"A cake may have a cherry on its top, but this atlas brings to our table many ‘cherries’ of wood science. … Overall, it is a great pleasure to spend time with this atlas. The vegetation scientist will find keys to interpret field observations. … The high level of all figures, along with the reasonable price of the book, makes it a perfect source for teaching material. … This atlas shows how much fun there is in science, in field work, and in wood." (Simcha Lev-Yadun and Paolo Cherubini, Journal of Vegetation Science, Vol. 19, 2008)

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good information for reconstructing past conditions 8 Nov 2011
By Andrew - Published on Amazon.com
This book covers a wide range of topics related to anatomical details that manifest past living conditions of plants. Many high quality microscopic images with annotations clearly illustrate the concepts that are discussed in the text. A basic knowledge of botanical terms is useful in understanding the text. I was very pleased with this book.
