Wood Science has an important role to play in wood sustainability, as mankind has been using it indiscriminately since time immemorial. In this virtual Seminar, our endeavor is to interact with the eminent researchers working on current trends in Wood Science research for advancing and expanding the role of wood-based materials for a sustainable future. The presentations from distinguished speakers from different vistas of wood science should immensely benefit scientist, scholars and students of wood science, specially those working in wood structure, wood evolution, wood culture, wood uses, wood composites and Bio- materials.
