Abstract The timber of dicotyledonous trees could not be classified on microscopic features in harmony with taxonomic practice because botanical systems were still faulty and not generally recognized, and because microscopic descriptions of timber were not uniform enough for compilation. To find whether timber features could be conformed with a botanic taxonomy, a scheme was drafted for the description of secondary wood of dicotyledonous trees based on definite, uniform and comparable characteristics.

On this basis short descriptions were compiled of the timber of 93 species and a table was composed of species identical in microscopic structure. The 24 most important characteristics of the 42 families represented were described. Families and species were indexed.
