Title: Wood anatomy of the neotropical Sapotaceae : XIV. Elaeoluma

Author: Kukachka, Bohumil Francis;

Date: 1980

Source: Research Paper FPL-RP-358. Madison, WI: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Forest Products Laboratory. 6 pages

Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)

Description: The genus Elaeoluma consists of three species distributed in the Amazon Basin, Surinam, Guyana, and Venezuela. The description presented here is based on E. glabrescens of the Amazon Basin. The wood is easily differentiated from all other neotropical Sapotaceae by its pale brown color, reticulate parenchyma, which is hardly discernable with a hand lens, and a low specific gravity averaging 0.50. Whether the correct nomenclature is Elaeoluma or Gymnoluma is problematical and remains to be resolved by a monographer.

Keywords: Wood anatomy, Sapotaceae, Brazil, Peru, specific gravity, Chrysophyllum, Elaeoluma, Gymnoluma
