Patterns of within-stem variations in wood specific gravity and water content for five temperate tree species

Topical collection : Estimation of standing forest biomass Intensive measurements of basic specific gravity and relative water content of lumens show that within-stem variations strongly depend on species and cannot be summarised through the typical patterns reported
