      Burton’s The Anatomy of Melancholy, which was first published in and reissued in several subsequent editions in the 17th century, was a vast, erudite behemoth of a book. The Anatomy expanded relentlessly in Burton’s lifetime, since he constantly reworked the text and added extra material to each new edition. It won a wide readership Author: Michael Edwards.   Goals / Objectives 1) Study radial and longitudinal variation in wood structure and physiology, andthe environmental factors that alter these. This should improve our understanding of the effects of different silvicultural regimes on wood quality and tree growth. 2) Investigate the effects of growth rate on decay resistance, wood density, and wood structure.

Preface FunCTionAl TrAiTs in WooD AnAToMy Pieter Baas, Hans Beeckman, Katarina Čufar & Veronica De Micco (editors) Functional traits have been attributed to wood from the earliest days of botanical science. Theophrastus (– BC) already opined on the diversity of mechanical strength and growth rate in conifers and broadleaved trees.

    As Rob Evans recalled a chance purchase as a fresh undergraduate changed his life: ‘In , I spent my savings on an electric guitar made from a rainforest hardwood, prized for its beauty and musicality. Although mass produced, this guitar was unique by virtue of the naturally high variability of wood. This atlas presents anatomical descriptions of the xylem, bark and pith of species belonging to 71 families. It highlights the anatomical diversity of trees, shrubs, dwarf shrubs, woody lianas and several of the prominent perennial herbs from the Eastern Mediterranean region, with a .
