How does wood degrade in space?

I'm sure wood decays in space due to the radiation, but I wonder how far it would decay beneath the surface. For small, non air-tight applications that require a nice, spongy material (such as plugging a non-airtight hole), would it become brittle? Powdery? Is there any research on this available?
