Pore space analysis of beech wood: The vessel network

  title={Pore space analysis of beech wood: The vessel network},
  author={Falk K. Wittel and S. A. McDonald and Federica Marone and Marco Stampanoni and Hans J. Herrmann and Peter Niemz},
Water transport in wood is vital for the survival of trees. With synchrotron radiation X-ray tomographic microscopy (SRXTM), it has become possible to characterize and quantify the three-dimensional (3D) network formed by vessels that are responsible for longitudinal transport. In the present study, the spatial size dependence of vessels and the organization inside single growth rings in terms of vessel-induced porosity was studied by SRXTM. Network characteristics, such as connectivity, were… CONTINUE READING
