An initial increase in moisture content caused few structural alterations in Salix but in Dichrostachys it resulted in considerable ray distension and massive deformation of non-gelatinous fibres. An attempt is made to correlate these observations with the physical and chemical changes known to occur during wood pyrolysis.
