Wood Structure of the Rosaceae in Relation to Ecology, Habit and Phenology

In: IAWA Journal

Twelve wood anatornical characters, together with broad parameters from ecology, habit and phenology were subjected to simple correlation analysis, path analysis and principal component analysis, in a total sampie of over 470 specimens belonging to 271 species of the Rosaceae from the entire distribution area of the farnily. The functional, developmental and systematic implications of the resulting relations are discussed. Based on the present analysis of ecological trends and previous phylogenetic analysis, a tentative scenario for the evolution of the Rosaceae is offered.
