, : Wood as an industrial hazard to health. 1 & 2. Holzindustrie, Leipzig. 19: 1; 2, 19-22; 53-6

Discusses the physical and chemical properties of wood dust in relation to health; gives tables showing the distribution in woods, by families and genera, and the physiological effects of cardiotonic steroids, saponins, quinones, stilbenes, tropolones and alkaloids; discusses the effects of wood dust (including toxic and allergic effects and damage to the lungs); and classifies some commonly used industrial woods into three groups: (a) those that are toxic or cause allergies, (b) those that are biologically active, and (c) those that are neutral or relatively inactive.
