Some Sources Of Variation In Structural Characteristics Of Douglas-Fir Bark
AbstractThis study examines variations in structure and formation of Douglas-fir bark. Development of a classification system based on the external appearance of the bark surface that would correlate with anatomical characteristics of the bark was not possible. Modification of bark by fungi was observed to occur in several specific ways, such as attacking cell walls of sclereids, removing contents from lumina of various cell types, and affecting formation of cork layers in regions associated with radial checks and fissures in the bark.
