Wound reactions in trees and wood quality

Cell wall macromolecules and reaction wood (CEMARE) workshop - Joint working groups 3 and 4 workshop

11th and 12th April 2008

What was the event?

This workshop dealt with recent developments and advances in understanding on structural and biochemical response of wood, bark and cambium to wounding and infection, biochemistry and regulation of defence reactions, and properties of discoloured wood, wet wood and wound-wood.

The sessions included contributed papers, and posters with short oral presentations.
