Copper mobilization in preserved wood under fungal attack

on Mon, 20/04/2015 - 09:26

Wei's latest manuscript has been published online at Wood and Fiber Science. This collaboration between us and Rob Stirling at FP Innovations probes the changes in copper speciation when wood is purposefully exposed to a range of different fungal spores. The ability of preserved wood leachates to protect against spore germination varies depending on the formulation of the preservative.
