The International Association of Wood Anatomists (IAWA) Journal is uniquely devoted to the publication of studies on the microscopic structure of wood and bark of trees and shrubs, and of bamboo, palms and rattans. The great diversity in anatomical traits of these botanical life forms allows to identify commercial timbers, fossil woods, wooden arts and crafts, and archeological wooden remains. Wood diversity also stores climatic signals in tree rings and cell patterns, and is therefore relevant for analyzing climate change of the past and predicting tree responses to future global warming and climatic extremes.
