Copaifera langsdorffii Desf., popularly known as copaíba, is an oleoresin-producing tree has been overexploited in Brazil by the pharmaceutical, cosmetic and varnish industries. Despite the long history of the use of this species, the structural knowledge on the resin-producing sites remains inadequate and is limited to the trunk. The aim of this study was to describe the origin, structure and developmental features of secretory spaces present in shoot and root wood of C. langsdorffii, based on… CONTINUE READING
