Wood colonizing fungi as a human pathogen
1992 - IRG/WP 92-1523
Today we recognize some 174 "pathogens" among the approximately 100000 species of fungi, which cause different diseases on man. 24 fungi which are well known as wood colonizing fungi have been identified as opportunistic human pathogen. Some of them have been found on the surface of the human body, causing superficial mycoses, or cutaneous infection, like dermatophytosis or dermatomycosis. Other c...
Assessment of the environmental impacts in life cycle analysis
1995 - IRG/WP 95-50040-31
Evaluation of environmental impacts is of crucial importance nowadays but it is a complex problem. Different methodologies have been proposed for the last 20 years such as the "Life Cycle Assessment" (LCA) approach. Life Cycle Assessment is an evalution tool of the impacts on the environment of a system including the whole activities associated with, from the extraction of the raw materials to the...

Chemical defense of trees and wood natural durability: from protection to valorization
2019 - IRG/WP 19-10943
Natural durability of wood is defined as “the inherent resistance of wood against various wood-destroying organisms” (European standard EN 350-1). This property is due in particular to heartwood extractives. However, the wood natural durability is included in a wider defense system, and other organs such as bark and roots also host protective compounds. Studying the mechanisms on which global ...
