Wood and Herbarium Identification

  • Involves the examination of the wood and non-wood specimens’ anatomical features using magnification devices such as microscope, stereoscope, and hand lens to establish their species.
  • Is especially useful to the construction, furniture and handicraft sectors to ensure the identity of raw materials used for their products.
  • Is made possible thru the Institute’s Wood and Herbarium Library, an internationally recognized facility housing 16,348 specimens of Philippine and foreign wood samples and 2,631 preserved plant specimens
