Natural resistance of twenty-five timber species to marine borer attack in Goa waters (India)
1992 - IRG/WP 92-4178
Natural durability of 25 species of Indian timbers has been discussed, based on data collected from test panels exposed in Goa waters (west coast of India. for a period of 7 months. All the timber species, except Cleistanthus collinus, were heavily destroyed within 7 months on account of the combined attack by Martesia striata (Linnaeus) and Lyrodus pedicellatus (Quatrefages). Cleistanthus collinu...

Cleistanthus collinus (Roxb.) Benth. ex Hook. f. and Wrightia tinctoria (Roxb.) R. Br. -- two timbers with promising durability under marine conditions
2005 - IRG/WP 05-10552
During the course of natural durability studies on indigenous timber at Visakhapatnam harbour, two species, namely, Cleistanthus collinus (Karada) and Wrightia tinctoria (Dudhi) were found to resist marine borer attack for reasonably longer periods. The panels of C. collinus completely resisted borer attack for 9 months but became susceptible to teredinid attack thereafter. The teredinids gradua...
