Comparison of cell wall composition and cellulose crystallinity of untreated and heat-treated wood for each event. Structural sugar monomers including A arabinose; B xylose; C galactose; D mannose; E glucose; and F Klason lignin; G acetone extractives; and H cellulose crystallinity index of untreated and heat-treated stem in each event. Each bar represents mean of technical duplicates of three individual plants per event with the standard error. Different letters represent significant differences among the samples (p ≤ 0.05) as calculated by one-way ANOVA followed by Tukey post hoc analysis
