Agarwood

Agarwood is a name given to the resinous, fragrant heartwood produced primarily by trees in the genus Aquilaria, ranging from Threatened to Extinct on the IUCN Red List. It has been used for centuries as highly-prized perfume, incense and traditional medicine across Asia and the Middle East. Today, the demand for Agarwood far exceeds the supply, thereby causing over-exploitation, resulting in much illegal trade. Click on the image to find out more. Image by Dr T. Bonebrake
