This volume deals with the analysis of all those plant fibers important to man industrially as well as those fibers important to the plant cell in a sturctural sense. Cellulose dominates the scene from an industrial point of view, and so here too many of the chapters are devoted to various aspects of this fiber which has long been used by man both as a textile, as wood for building purposes or as paper. Lignin, associated so often with cellulose, is also dealt with at length, and other cell wall materials find a place in the volume as well.
