Intraspecific variability of durability of Wapa courbaril (Eperua grandiflora) against Antrodia sp. and Coriolus versicolor : effect of radial and height position in the stem

Amusant N., Beauchêne J., Fournier M.. 2004. In : 35th Annual Meeting International Research Group on Wood Preservation, Ljubljana, Slovenia, 6 - 10 June 2004. s.l. : s.n., 9 p.. International Research Group on Wood Preservation Annual Meeting. 35, 2004-06-06/2004-06-10, Ljubljana (Slovénie).

The variation of a lesser-used species, Eperua grandiflora attacked by brown and white rot has been examined. Trees of this specie showed differences in their behaviour against the type of rot used and also showed evidence of intra and inter tree variation. The "tree" effect is very significant concerning natural resistance. In the same way, there is variation of durability observed according to radial and vertical position in the stem. Although the vertical effect is less significant from practises point of view.
