The International Association of Wood Anatomists list of characters was designed to fit a series of programs developed by Morse in the early 1970s for general taxonomic work and has the same number of characters originally used by Morse. Some of these characters are not essential for wood identification and it is suggested that the list be shortened to save storage space and be less formidable to potential users.
