A series of technical and scientific papers taken from the Woodcare conference held in London in 1998 on structural oak timber decay in historic buildings and the deathwatch beetle (Xestobium rufovillosum).
These 12 papers address the detection, management and control, treatment and monitoring of fungi, the deathwatch beetle and timber decay. A number of the papers form reports from the European Commission's Woodcare Project.
