This interactive, multimedia CD-ROM is a comprehensive database on wood and wood products covering more than 900 of the world's most important temperate and tropical wood species. It contains detailed information on geographic origin, environmental status, common names, physical and strength properties, woodworking characteristics as well as full-colour pictures, video clips and maps of woods. Search and comparative features allow the user to locate a wood species by its common or specific name or country of origin or by its physical and woodworking properties. A report-writing screen enables the user to enter and store their own data on any species. There is an environmentalist profile on many of the species. The CD also contains data on organizations and businesses involved in the emerging sector of "well-managed forestry". In addition, this Internet edition of the title provides software with hyperlinks to over 2500 Interent sites, offering further information (about 15,000 keywords) on everything on "wood".show more
