Ultrastructure of terminalia wood from an ancient polynesian canoe

, : Ultrastructure of terminalia wood from an ancient polynesian canoe. IAWA (International Association of Wood Anatomists) Bulletin 11(2): 195-202

A sample of Terminalia wood recovered from an ancient Polynesian canoe thought to be approximately 1000 years old, was examined by light and electron microscopy to determine the extent of pattern of degradation. A chemical analysis was also carried out. The secondary wall of fibres, vessels and parenchymal cells were extensively degraded but the compound middle lamella remained relatively intact. vestures in intervascular pits were preserved, presumably by virtue of their high lignin concentration. Plasmodesmata were also preserved by infiltration with extractives thought to be tannins.

We reexamined the safety of dual RAS blockade, especially in patien...
