The Concise Encyclopedias draw relevant articles from the Encyclopedia of Materials Science and Engineering, the only complete reference work in this rapidly developing field. Where necessary, articles have been revised and new articles have been commissioned to provide current accounts of the most recent developments in each area. Copublished with Pergamon Press.
All aspects of wood as a material are covered extensively in this concise encyclopedia, including descriptions of the major commercial wood species of the world, the availability and the economics of timber resources, fundamental properties and behavior, factors causing deterioration and their control, and the principal methods of processing. The encyclopedia also discusses wood based materials, such as particleboard, plywood, hardboard, and paper, and woody materials, such as bamboo and rattan.
