Reviews

From the reviews:

"A cake may have a cherry on its top, but this atlas brings to our table many ‘cherries’ of wood science. … Overall, it is a great pleasure to spend time with this atlas. The vegetation scientist will find keys to interpret field observations. … The high level of all figures, along with the reasonable price of the book, makes it a perfect source for teaching material. … This atlas shows how much fun there is in science, in field work, and in wood." (Simcha Lev-Yadun and Paolo Cherubini, Journal of Vegetation Science, Vol. 19, 2008)
