Search Menu Abstract The following critiques express the opinions of the individual evaluators regarding the strengths, weaknesses, and value of the books they review.

Referring to the actual CITES proposal that was responsible for the listing of the Dalbergia genus, the document had this to say: Illegal logging is a prevalent problem in Central America. Each wood has been meticulously documented and photographed, listed with its Janka hardness value in lbf and geographic and global hardness rankings. CITES has a pretty extensive database of names and contact information that you can use to get in touch with the relevant authorities for your situation. Try gouging the edge with your fingernail to get a sense of its hardness. And going right along with this, Kosso has met a similar fate.
