Platform for illegal wood identification with DART-MS
The identification of protected tree species which are listed in the CITES list based in morphological characteristics is difficult. DART-MS demonstrated great utility to distinguish morphologically similar species based on their chemical fingerprints. Our computational platform Forest Database provides access to tools for wood identification, as well as morphological and DART-MS data. The use of this platform will be globally accessible for customs offices, and support the identification of illegally traded wood.
