Biodeterioration and Biodegradation of Wooden Heritage: Role of Fungal Succession
("Alexandru Ioan Cuza" University Publishing House, 2016-09)
Wood from heritage is usually attacked by wood-decay fungi generating mainly loss of dimensional and structural stability. The study of wood biodegradation process and its mechanism allow the obtaining of tools for wood ...
COPPER ANCHORED TO AMINO-GROUP FUNCTIONALIZED SILICA GEL AS WOOD PRESERVATIVE AGAINST BROWN-ROT DECAY
(Universidad del Bío-Bío, 2010)
Potential of selected fungi for biological stump removal of Eucalyptus spp.
(Elsevier B.V., 2017-10-15)
This study aimed to evaluate the decay potential of fungi isolated from plantations of Eucalyptus spp. for biological stump removal. Therefore, an accelerated decay test was performed with fungi isolated from stumps of ...
Chemical properties and decay resistance of eucalyptus grandis wood from steamed logs
The objective of this study was evaluate the effect of the log steaming on the chemical properties and decay resistance of Eucalyptus grandis wood. Logs with diameter between 20 and 22 cm were studied. Half of logs were ...
Changes in the Chemical Composition and Decay Resistance of Thermally-Modified Hevea brasiliensis Wood
In this study the effect of thermal treatment on the equilibrium moisture content, chemical composition and biological resistance to decay fungi of juvenile and mature Hevea brasiliensis wood (rubber wood) was evaluated. ...
Decay resistance of thermally-modified Eucalyptus grandis wood at 140 degrees C, 160 degrees C, 180 degrees C, 200 degrees C and 220 degrees C
(Elsevier B.V., 2010-12-01)
The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of thermal treatment on the biological resistance of Eucalyptus grandis wood to the decay fungus Picnoporus sanguineus. Boards from 5 years and 11 months old E. grandis ...
Dimensional stability, fire performance and decay resistance in wood impregnated with Alkylalkoxysilanes
(World Scientific, 2013-11)
The wood, very heterogeneous and complex material, changes its volume by water absorption or desorption causing swelling or shrinkage and also it can be degraded both by action of microorganisms and fire; the above-mentioned ...
Exploring glycoside hydrolases and accessory proteins from wood decay fungi to enhance sugarcane bagasse saccharification
(BioMed Central, 2016)
Abstract Background Glycoside hydrolases (GHs) and accessory proteins are key components for efficient and cost-effective enzymatic hydrolysis of polysaccharides in modern, ...
Radial variation of anatomical features, wood density and decay resistance in teak (Tectona grandis) from two qualities of growing sites and two climatic regions of Costa Rica
(INST NACIONAL INVESTIGACION TECHNOLOGIA AGRARIA ALIMENTARIA, 2009)
The objective of this study was to show the radial variation of some anatomic characteristics, wood density and natural durability of teak (Tectona grandis L.F.) growing in Costa Rica. Samples of trees 13 years old were ...
Wood Decay By Inonotus Rickii and Bjerkandera Adusta: A Micro- And Ultra-Structural Approach
(International Association Of Wood Anatomists, 2014-01)
Bjerkandera adusta (Willd.) P. Karst. and Inonotus rickii (Pat.) D.A. Reid. are important xylophagous fungi affecting street trees in Buenos Aires City, Argentina. The objective of this paper is to describe the decay ...
