abstract
As wood is prone to biological degradation, it is necessary to gather knowledge concerning its susceptibility to fungal attack to strengthen its position as a building material. By using state-of-the-art techniques such as confocal microscopy and X-ray computed tomography, combined with advanced processing and simulation tools, fundamental insight can be acquired in the wood decay processes.
