Title: Wood anatomy of the neotropical Sapotaceae. VII, Chrysophyllum

Author: Kukachka, B. F.;

Date: 1978

Source: Res. Pap. FPL-331. Madison, WI: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Forest Products Laboratory. 9 pages

Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)

Description: In the neotropics, the genus Chrysophyllum consists of C. cainito and a number of species which have recently been assigned to the genus Cynodendron. Many taxonomists have not accepted the new genus Cynodendron and this is supported by the present study of the wood anatomy. In this restricted sense, Chrysophyllum consists of a group of closely related species that are readily identifiable by their anatomical structure.

Keywords: Wood anatomy, Chrysophyllum, specific gravity, Cynodendron, Sapotaceae, tropical woods
