    Book: Compression wood in Gymnosperms. Volume 3. Ecology of compression wood formation, silviculture and compression wood, mechanism of compression wood action, compression wood in the lumber and pulp and paper industries, compression wood induced by the balsam woolly aphid, opposite wood. pp ted by: 9. The wood of gymnosperms is simpler and more homogeneous than that of angiosperms. Except for the species of the order Gnetales, tracheids are the only conducting elements in gymnosperms. The most important insights into the structure and formation of pine wood that is always regarded as the prototype of gymnosperm wood stem from the German KARL SANIO ().

    Wood is a porous and fibrous structural tissue found in the stems and roots of trees and other woody is an organic material – a natural composite of cellulose fibers that are strong in tension and embedded in a matrix of lignin that resists compression. Wood is sometimes defined as only the secondary xylem in the stems of trees, or it is defined more broadly to include the same. However, compression wood is apparently absent in gymnosperm lineages of Cycadales and Gnetales (see the Evolution of reaction woods section below). Compression wood formation is often associated with eccentric growth, with growth rings larger on the lower Cited by:

      Some of the anatomical characteristics observed in the underside xylem resembled compression wood in gymnosperms. These results suggest that the increase of microfibril angle in the secondary wall and an increase in lignin content in angiosperms might be common phenomena resembling compression wood of by: 4. Wood from Angiosperms is considered to be "Hardwood" For similarity- Both groups produce seeds For difference- 1. Seeds are naked in Gymnosperms whereas in Angiosperms these are produced inside fruit.

Reaction wood, compression wood in gymnosperms and tension wood in the arboreal angiosperms, serves the function of making it possible for trees to perform movements. In the ancient Ginkgo and in the conifers, the ability to form compression wood is of vital importance to each and every tree.

Its cells are characterized by unusually high lignin and lower cellulose content. The cell walls contain spiral gaps (called ‘‘spiral checks’’) along the steeper S 2 microfibril angle that is a characteristic of these tissues (up to ∼45° instead of the normal 5–25° from the tracheid axis) (Fig.

It is typically found on branches and leaning stems. It is an example of mechanical acclimation in trees. Progressive bending and cracking would occur in parts of the tree undergoing predominantly tensile or compressive stresses were it.

The last pages of the book teach children how to make a more "creature friendly" backyard, including information about what types of food, trees and flowers attract different kinds of animals. Where Once There Was a Wood also includes an informative bibliography for compression wood in gymnosperms.

Reaction wood, which is called “compression wood” in gymnosperms (Fig. ) because it occurs on the lower (leeward) side, and “tension wood” in angiosperms because it occurs on the upper side of leaning stems, is well documented in trees on persistently windy sites (Savill, ).
