Relation of arabinogalactans to density, growth rate and shear strength in wood of cultivated Siberian larch

Present in high concentrations in the heartwood of Larix species, water-soluble arabinogalactans affect the density, moisture content and processing properties of larch wood. The aim of this study was to chart arabinogalactan concentration (AC) and to define the relations between arabinogalactans, and density and shear strength at different axial and radial… CONTINUE READING
