Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)

Description: Paralabatia is a small genus of five or six species ranging from the Amazon to the West Indies. From the anatomical standpoint the genus as constituted by Aubréville forms a group of closely related species. In marked contrast the four species cited by Baehni belong to four different anatomical groups. The woods of Paralabatia are somewhat similar to those of Neoxythece but can be readily distinguished by the smaller pores and shorter vessel members characteristic of Paralabatia.

Keywords: Sapotaceae, wood anatomy, Paralabatia, Penteniodendron, Sideroxylon, Micropholis, Paramicropholis, Mastichodendron, Pouteria, specific gravity
