Radial Variation of Cell Morphology in Three Acacia Species
Acacia species are widely planted for pulp production in south-east Asian countries. It is well known that pulp properties strongly relate to cell morphology of wood [1, 2, 3]. In the present study, radial variation of cell morphology (diameter, wall thickness and length in vessel element and wood fiber, and volume of cell types) in two Acacia species (A. mangium and A. auriculiformis) and their hybrid (A. mangium x A. auriculiformis) was examined.
