Brazilwood
PAUBRASILIA is a genus of flowering plants in the legume family, Fabaceae
Fabaceae
. The sole species it contains, P. echinata, is a Brazilian timber tree commonly known as PERNAMBUCO TREE or BRAZILWOOD (Portuguese: Pau de Pernambuco, Pau-Brasil; Tupi Ibirapitanga). This plant has a dense, orange-red heartwood that takes a high shine, and it is the premier wood used for making bows for stringed instruments. The wood also yields a red dye called brazilin , which oxidizes to brazilein. The name pau-brasil was applied to certain species of Caesalpinia
Caesalpinia
in the medieval period, and transferred to C. echinata in the 16th century. More recent taxonomic studies have determined that it merits recognition as a separate genus, and it was thus renamed Paubrasilia echinata in 2016. The name of Brazil
Brazil
is shortened from Terra do Brasil "land of brazilwood"
