Anatomielogo
Teachers:  Holger Gärtner, Fritz H. Schweingruber & Alan Crivellaro
Location:  Hotel Kurhaus, Klosters, Switzerland
Date:  November 27th to December 3rd, 2016

Scope

The aim of the course is to submit basic theoretical information about the anatomy of woody plants and especially ecological wood anatomy.

This will be done by demonstrating "the reality" (anatomical features) on the base of more than 370 micro sections which are prepared for each participant.

A very important part of the course is the additional teaching of different anatomical preparation techniques.

More detailed information about this wood anatomy course can be found in the following reports about previous courses held in Switzerland and the US:
