I have done an extensive search of the information resources available to me as
an under-grad bio student in Aust. of the wood anatomy of the Baobab tree,
(Adansonia), family Bombacaceae. I have only found two sources relevant to the
topic in Aust.(Anatomy of Dicots. Metcalf & Chalk & Wound healing in Adansonia. 
Jack B. Fisher), the rest are located O.S. and impossible for me to get, because
under-grads can't have inter-library loans (from within the Uni). Outside the 
institution it costs $$, which I don't have. 
If anyone would be generous enough to locate and email what ever is available
on the wood anatomy, I would be extremely appreciative of your time and efforts.

Some relevant reports, but the languages maybe a problem: 
Newton, L. (1974) Is the baobab tree succulent. Cacts. & Succ. journ. Gt. Brit. 
36: 57-58.

Braun, Karl. Beitrage zur Anatomie der Adansonia digitata L. / Von Karl Braun.
Basel: Fr. Reinhardt, 1900 (thesis).

Gerber, C. (1895). Contribution a` l'histoire botanique, therapeutique et 
de genrre Adansonia (Baobab). Ann. Inst. Colon. Marseille 2, 2: 1-78.
