Description: Wood is a fairly complex material, whether you think of it in terms of boards or timbers or string along with what the chemist says it is. For ages wood has been vital to an ever-mounting scale of living. If it is to continue to serve in more ways and in new forms, most of the means for these changes will have to be found by looking into the physical and chemical maze that lies below the surface.

Keywords: Wood anatomy, wood morphology
