摘要:Wood Culture is as old as mankind and the oldest traces of woods used in hearths and tools date back hundreds of thousands of years. The crucial role of forests and timber in the rise and fall of entire civilisations will be highlighted, as well as the crucial role trees and a carbon neutral “timber-based society” could play today to “save the planet” by sequestering and storing the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide. 

Wood science can be traced back to the early writings of Theophrastus and other Greek and Roman philosophers. It received a great boost with the discovery of the microscope and the establishment of extensive wood collections in the 17th and 18th century in Europe. 

As a multidisciplinary science it nowadays integrates all advances in physics, chemistry, microscopy, mechanics, mathematics and nanotechnology. In this talk I will highlight the role which wood science, especially wood anatomy, can play in the understanding of wood culture in all its beauty and diversity.
