Workshop. Identifying wood

Lunch break   12:20 PM to 01:35 PM (1 hour 15 minutes)

Wood identification lies at the base of dendroarchaeology and is a key piece of information towards dating wood. But identifying the wood we are dealing with is an often neglected step leading to possible misinterpretations. Therefore being able to observe a wood transverse section and identify the pattern of cells topical of a given species should be common knowledge for novice and experienced dendrochronologists. Building upon my experience in identifying commercial timbers, I will guide you into a step-by-step procedure to learn how to identify woods based on their anatomical characteristics. Once you will know the process and valuable resources in wood identification, you will be able to apply it over and over as the base for your dendrostudies.
