Natural durability, density and extractive contents of 42 wood species of Bangladesh.
S Akhter, K Akhter, S C Das
Natural durability, density and major extractive contents of 42 lesser used or unused wood species of Bangladesh have been studied. Correlation analysis between these properties has been performed. It has been shown that natural durability of these species neither explained by water soluble nor by alcohol benzene extractive contents. Density has a weak but significant positive correlation with durability which indicates that density might have some influence on durability of these wood species.
