Bark structure of Argentine species of Anacardiaceae
AbstractArgentina bears a potential of 28.389.000 ha forests with species of the Anacardiaceae family. These species are very well-known tannins producers. The present work aims to contribute to the study of the bark anatomy of native Anacardiaceae trees, as well as to set the bases of their use as raw material of non traditional forest products. A macroscopic and microscopic description of bark tissues histometry is provided, as well as a description of secretion structures. A key to species differentiation, based on bark characteristics, is also given. The possibilities of producing tannin products are determined by secretion structure characteristics.
