6. Inorganic compounds in the marine borer resistant timber turpentine (Syncarpia glomulifera).

Turpentine wood is renowned for its resistance to attack by molluskan marine borers. This resistance is thought to be due to its high silica content, and possibly the presence of other, as yet unknown, compounds. Silica in turpentine wood is present as particles in rays, but in many plant species...
