Author: Wani, Bilal Ahmad (Scholar); Khan, Amina (Guide)
Abstract: Wood is unique among the world’s important raw materials virtually used by every one in diverse ways. It is the hard fibrous substance beneath the bark in the stems and branches of trees and shrubs. It is basically secondary xylem produced by the meristematic activity of cambium and consists of cells or wood elements that have passed through various stages of development. All the phases i.e., cellular division, differentiation and maturation lead to wood formation. Wood is a remarkable material with a variability and flexibility that makes it useful for many kinds of products. Wood is known to have been used for various structural and other purposes since the dawn of history and has been serving mankind even in modern times with enormous technological know how. It is the fifth most important product of the world trade. The present study involved detailed information of within tree variation in physical and anatomical properties of the wood from three sites of five different species of trees viz., Parrotiopsis jacquemontiana, Salix alba, Populus nigra, Juglans regia and Robinia pseudoacacia. The objectives were to study the within tree variation in physical properties, anatomical parameters and ratios with reference to radial and height positions and also due to site variation of the five different species for their use in different wood based industries. Conclusion pertaining to the variation in physical and anatomical properties and ratios due to the effect of sites, radial positions and vertical levels in five different species viz., Parrotiopsis jacquemontiana, Salix alba, Populus nigra, Juglans regia and Robinia pseudoacacia are discussed in this thesis.
