Abstract

Laboratory studies on wood decay resistance are useful in both research and teaching. These studies have been used extensively to determine decay resistance of tropical woods to wood rot fungi found in the temperate regions of North America (9, 16, 20, 25, 26, 27). The methods have been used or suggested as tools in basic research on fungal ecology (4, 13, 14, 17), abnormal wood (5, 6, 12, 24) and wood variability (8, 21, 22, 28). The techniques also are adapted for use as laboratory exercises in a Plant Pathology course, especially if conducted in conjunction with other laboratory deterioration procedures (18, 23, 29). Because of these uses, the suggestion was made that these laboratory procedures be presented in their entirety. This paper is an attempt to achieve this purpose.
