This blog was created to highlight activities of the N.C. Brown Center for Ultrastructure Studies at SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (ESF) in Syracuse, NY. Posts include images of wood anatomy that are part of the NC Brown archives, student class projects, and news on center activities.

The NC Brown Center for Ultrastructure Studies at SUNY-ESF provides instruction and assistance in light microscopy methods, scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, digital imaging, and image analysis. Many departments and programs within the College and neighboring universities are represented among the faculty, staff and students who use the microscopes for research and instruction. The Center’s academic program provides courses for both undergraduate and graduate students.

The Center also provides microscopy services with particular focus on the forest product industries, pulp and paper manufacturers, wood products manufacturers, engineers and architects. Recent industry projects include quality control of manufactured wood products; analysis of paper, pulp and other fiber-based products; decay condition analysis of wood products; analysis of a variety of materials for structure and elemental composition, and wood identification.
