Albizia richardiana (Voigt) King & Prain is a promising light demanding fast growing species and planted as an ornamental tree in Bangladesh. Wood is light yellow colored, contain indistinguishable sapwood and heartwood. The present study abridges the results of an assessment designed at assessing the uses of A. richardiana as an alternative source...

In forest ecosystems, ectomycorrhizal (ECM) fungi are important for plant growth and soil biogeochemical processes. The biochemical composition of ECM mycelium is an important fungal effect trait with consequences for its decomposition rate, and consequently on soil carbon pools and plant nutrition. Although the link between ECM fungi and leaf litt...

The study was conducted to assess the properties of cement bonded board made from Areca catechu (betel nut) stem. Fine, coarse and fine-coarse boards were prepared. The ratios of particles weight and cement were 1:2 and 1:3 for each type of board. The laboratory tests for characterization of physical and mechanical properties were carried out for e...

This study investigated the physical and mechanical properties of the rice straw (Oryza Sativa L.) fiberboard. The fiberboards were made in two conditions i.e. untreated and hot water treated rice straw fiberboard. These were manufactured using urea formaldehyde adhesive. They were tested for certain physical and mechanical properties. The density...

A study was undertaken to identify jute (Corchorus olitorius L.) and dhaincha (Sesbania cannabina Retz.) sticks for Agricultural Plastic Composites (APC). In this study, JCF (Jute Coarse and Fine), DCF (Dhaincha Coarse and Fine), JF (Jute Fine) and DF (Dhaincha Fine) boards were produced. The density of JCF, DCF, JF and DF was respectively 0.93,...

The dipterocarps are of economic and ecological significance. To determine if simple traits can be used to distinguish wood of five representative species (Dipterocarpus kerrii, Hopea plagata, Parashorea malaanoman, Shorea almon and Shorea contorta), we determined tree height, wood density and chloroplastic (cp) DNA restriction patterns as a molecu...

This paper investigated the potentiality of muli (Melocanna baccifera) for making bamboo mat plywood. Bamboo mat plywood with the length, width and thickness of 2.4 m × 1.2 m × 7 mm was made using liquid urea formaldehyde resin. The physical and mechanical prop-erties of such plywood were compared with the existing market plywood. The average densi...

The goal of this study was to characterise chemical and histochemical properties of five dipterocarp timber wood species (Dipterocarpus kerrii, Hopea plagata, Parashorea malaanoman, Shorea almon, and Shorea contorta) differing in wood service life and utilisation. Wood of H. plagata, the most durable species, contained the lowest concentrations of...

Wood anatomy of five dipterocarp species endemic to the Philippines was studied with the goal to explore functional wood traits of ecological significance. Stem wood of 6-year-old trees grown under similar environmental conditions in a plantation (Leyte, Philippines) was used. Wood densities decreased in the following order Hopea plagata>Dipterocar...

FTIR spectroscopy was used to distinguish between beech (Fagus sylvatica L.) trees grown at five different sites; one in middle Germany close to Gottingen (forest district Reinhausen), three located in the southwest (two in Rhineland-Palatinate: forest districts Saarburg and Hochwald, and one in Luxembourg), and one in North-Rhine Westfalia. Detail...

Teak (Tectona grandis Linn. F.) is the most valuable wood species in Bangladesh as well as in the world. Few researches have been carried out on the stand quality assessment of teak plantation in Bangladesh. Site variations offered different shape of bole like square, an elliptical or triangle and sometimes deformation results in deep irregular ver...
