Characterization of tropical wood-decaying fungi by RFLP analysis of PCR amplified rDNA
1998 - IRG/WP 98-10251
Five brown-rot fungi (Tyromyces palustris, Gloeophyllum trabeum, Antrodia sp., Poria placenta, Coniophora puteana) and three white-rot fungi (Coriolus versicolor, Pycnoporus sanguineus, Lentinus squarrosulus) registred as representative wood-decaying fungi for international standards of wood durability tests have been characterized using molecular tools (PCR/RFLP). The Internal Transcribed Spacer ...

Evaluation of tropical wood by-products as a potential source for termite control products
2001 - IRG/WP 01-10408
Termites damaging in houses represent an ever growing threat in Europe, where the phenomenon has accelerated during the last ten years, as well as in the tropics, where infestations are permanent. To fight against this plague, the current methods used, through injection of organochloric or organophosphorized products into the timber structures and walls, are belonging to the past due to the toxici...

Evaluation of Rosewood extractives as potential source for termite control
2003 - IRG/WP 03-30323
Rosewood (Aniba rosaeodora) is an extremely durable tropical timber species that has been widely used in the past in perfumery on account of its high proportion of essential oil. The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of the extractives from rosewood as possible active ingredients for termite control. Some rosewood sawdust has been extracted using different solvents and methods. The e...
