Abstract

422 dominantly Persian. Unfortunately a numberof the illustrations are very poor. In many pages one recognises copies from earlier publications in the international wood anatomicalliterature. Even illustrations from arecent paper by Gasson in IAWA Bulletin n.s. 6,1985, have been faithfully copied. One is surprised why the author has not quoted his sources in these instances. I have failed to discover a logical sequence in this collection of illustrations of variable quality. Oaks and several softwoods show up in various places and there is an am pie re- IAWA Bulletin n.s., Vol. 7(4),1986 presentation of Tamarix species, on wh ich the author did much original work. Apparently this major section of the book contains the 'notes on commercial species of the worId' promised in the titIe of the book. The value of this book will be largely restricted to teaching wood anatomy in Iran. There is little information on wood technology, although the titIe suggests the latter to be the main subject. For information on this field we will probably have to wait for volume II. Pieter Baas ASSOCIATlON AFF AIRS Deaths Two distinguished Honorary IAWA Members died earlier this year. Dr. E. W. J.
