Anatomical variation in the wood of Robinia pseudoacacia L. and the identity of Miocene fossil woods from southwestern United States



Anatomical variation in the wood of Robinia pseudoacacia L. and the identity of Miocene fossil woods from southwestern United States



IAWA Journal 14(3): 299-314



A detailed analysis of selected quantitative features was made of secondary xylem from the stem, branch, and root of a specimen of 80-yr-old extant Robinia pseudoacacia. The results were compared with those on samples of two fossil woods closely similar to the wood of Robinia, one from Dove Spring, California, and the other from Stewart Valley, Nevada. Results showed considerable overlap in ranges of variation in the fossils and extant woods.
