Strichcode Tropenholz: Genetic Barcode Against Forestry Law-breaking

Your article on this subject is very interesting. It reminds me very much of the illegal ivory trade in Africa and the illegal shark's fin trade in Asia (particularly Hong Kong and Mainland China). As long as there is a demand for these articles people will find ways to circumvent the laws and illegally fell these magnificent trees. Just like the gun trade going on in Mexico, greedy gun vendors will sell to anyone willing to pay their price despite the laws that prohibit such activities. Good luck on installing a genetic bar code on these beautiful and magnificent trees!
