Abstract

1. The bald-cypress and pond-cypress cannot be distinguished from one another on the basis of microstructural features of their woods. 2. The similarity of the woods of these two forms further supports the view that the pond-cypress is a variation of the bald-cypress. 3. The wood of the Mexican or Montezuma cypress can be separated from the other two cypresses on the basis of its comparatively thinner horizontal walls of ray parenchyma cells.
