Reviews

This book is a must read...perfect for advanced undergraduate courses and ...as a reference manual for professional foresters working on aspect of silviculture, forest management or forest genetics. This reviewer looks forward to using excerpts for a forest genetics course and to establish this book as a class resource for years to come.-- "Choice"
This is an excellent book that should receive widespread adoption and use in the coming years.-- "BioScience"
