3rd Training School in Quantitative Wood AnatomyAnybody interested to use quantitative wood anatomy is invited, including young and experienced researchers, and technicians, to participate in this course. The participants will be provided with the necessary skills to extract high-quality anatomical data from wood samples. The course starts with an overview of different sample preparation techniques and then focuses on all processing and analysis steps until the data is produced. The program includes ample time for practicing. The focus will be on anatomical measurements related to conduits (size, cell wall thickness, vessel topology), since they are most commonly used in research. But also the quantification of cells in the phloem and ray parenchyma will be considered.
