YUNUS, M., YUNUS, D & IQBAL, M., 1990. Systematic bark morphology of some tropical trees. Bark of 103 tropical trees of India has been examined from a systematic viewpoint and macroscopic features for use in field identification are considered. They are broadly categorized on the basis of diverse surface patterns and configurations as: deep fissured, shallow fissured, dippled, and entire. Identification of species is facilitated by the nature of the periderm and expansion tissue. The significance of bark anatomy in relation to systematics is discussed.
