AbstractFull Text

Near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy associated with multivariate statistics has been successfully applied to a range of studies involving wood properties and its products. However, the use of NIR spectroscopy for technological classification of heat-treated wood is less common. Thus, the aim of this...

AbstractFull Text

The interaction between wood and soil is one of the most hostile environment that a piece of wood can be exposed to. However, few field tests have been developed to determine its natural durability of Mexican timber species. In this study, the natural durability of seven tropical timber species was ...
