With the authorization and help of IAWA, the IAWA list of microscopic features for softwood identification in Serbian is compiled by Pedja Janaćković and Milan Gavrilović from the Department of Morphology and Systematics, Plants Faculty of Biology, University of Belgrade, Serbia. IAWA has already authorized the copyright to IAWA list of microscopic features in Japanese and Chinese. IAWA encourages members to compile the IAWA publications in different languages for non-profit purposes, which may obviously propagate the knowledge distribution of wood anatomy and wood science.
