Elements of Bark Structure and Terminology
AbstractBark structure varies considerably from that of wood, although analogies may be drawn between specific elements and overall structure and function. The terminology of bark structure is discussed and various cellular elements are described. Several bark structures are illustrated with light and electron micrographs pointing out differences between species and species groups.
