The IVALSA xylotheque collects a variety of wood samples coming from all over the world. Each wood specimen is accompanied by a complete identification and characterisation form including a list of both scientific and vernacular names. Thin sections for microscopy and other anatomical preparations are also available. All the information for the identification of wood species is managed through a digital database. The collection presently counts about 10.000 wood samples related to 5.700 different botanical species. Prepared thin sections, sliced along the three main anatomical directions for microscopic wood identification analyses, are available for about 4.000 wood species.
