Summary "This volume presents comprehensive and practical information on propagation techniques, mycorrhizal inoculation, and reforestation of useful tropical forest trees. It also covers the physiology and ecology of dipterocarps. Written by leading international figures from a wide range of disciplines in forest sciences and plant biotechnology, this book will be an invaluable source of information for researchers, decision makers, and practitioners in the sphere of forest plantation."--Jacket
