2) Specific gravity is included for all species and average tangential, radial, and volumetric shrinkage values are included where available.
3) Each data sheet includes a line drawing of a key botanical feature, a photomicrograph of the end grain of the wood, and a color photograph of a sample of the wood.
4) This new edition also contains a common name index of over 2,000 names, a family name index, a scientific name index, and three very useful appendices including a discussion of biology and taxonomy for woodworkers, insights on the toxicity of various wood species and possible health effects related to the handling and use of these species, and a list of selected references of use to readers.
