URBINATI, Cláudia Viana et al. Structure of the secondary xylem of Aniba Aubl. species from the Brazilian Amazon. Acta Bot. Bras. [online]. 2014, vol.28, n.3, pp.484-488. ISSN 0102-3306.

The aim of this study was to characterize the wood of Aniba species from the Brazilian Amazon, on the basis of specimens in the wood collection of the Herbarium of the Museu Paraense Emílio Goeldi, in the city of Belém, Brazil. The species were found to present a homogeneous structure in the secondary xylem, as defined by the location of oil cells; the presence of tyloses and crystals; and singularities of the radial and axial parenchyma.

Keywords : Anatomy of wood; identification of wood; Lauraceae.
