Abstract : Présentation de l'éditeur : PROTA 7 deals with the timbers of Tropical Africa. Because the group is very large, it has been subdivided into 2 volumes. In PROTA 7(1) 511 "primary use" timbers, belonging to a selection of 25 botanical families, were described in 280 review articles (2008). This volume, PROTA 7(2) describes 693 "primary use" timbers in 314 review articles. All articles are illustrated with a geographic distribution map and many with a line drawing of the habit. The accompanying CD-Rom allows for easy searching through the texts and contains in addition numerous photographs (a.o. on wood anatomy)
