ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT: Wood, being a natural material is very variable. This variability is attributed mostly to variations in the anatomical structure of wood. This investigation was carried out as part of a long term program which aims at finding quantitative analysis of wood microstructure. This type of quantitative analysis facilitates the establishment of relationships between different microscopic feature wood anatomy such as vessels diameter, wood specific gravity, vessels frequency, vessels length, ray height, ray seriate, ray frequency, fiber diameter, fiber length, type of parenchyma and cell wall thickness etc. Albiziaprocerahas found throughout of India as well as sub continent. The present study deals with microstructure ofAlbiziaproceraunder this experiment sample was take from 22 localities. The results revealed significant differences in most microscopic feature between localities, as well as correlations between many of microscopic feature. The obtained mathematical models relating locality to anatomical properties indicated that the most important anatomical properties affecting wood structure as well as variation of wood were: vessel diameter, diameter of parenchyma cells, lumen fraction and diameter of fibre lumen.The high values that were for index the greater degree mesomophis nature of wood and conductive efficiencyAlbiziaprocerathe entire has large vessel with few vessel per unit area indicating a preference for conductive efficiency whether they have mesic or xeric ecology. This is tree highly Ecological adaptability in temperate tropical and subtropical because vulnerability and mesomorphy relation is positive.
