Thornscrubs are a vegetation type from Northeast Mexico, consisting of 60 to 80 tree and shrub species that are used for a wide range of constructive, decorative and energy purposes. However, basic research of the physical and mechanical wood properties are still needed to establish additional uses and, thereby, increase their value in the timber industry. In this research, wood from fourteen native species were studied with regard to their basic density (BD), modulus of elasticity (MOE), and… CONTINUE READING
