Keywords:Parana pine, <i>Cedro misionera</i>, Peterebi, <i>Quebracho colorado</i>, <i>Quebracho blanco</i>, <i>Algarrobo blanco</i>, sorption isotherms, adsorption, desorption, shrinkage
AbstractSorption isotherms and shrinkage values were measured for six valuable Argentine wood species. Fiber saturation points were calculated. Tangential shrinkage ranged from 3.1 to 8.5% and radial shrinkage from 2.2 to 6.4%
