Silviculture in the tropics. Tropical forest ecosystems and their tree species: possibilities and methods to ensure sustained productivity

Silviculture in the tropics. Tropical forest ecosystems and their tree species: possibilities and methods to ensure sustained productivity

Waldbau in den Tropen Die tropischen Waldokosysteme und ihre Baumarten Moglichkeiten und Methoden zu ihrer nachhaltigen Nutzung: 318

The book is divided into 3 sections: Principles of silviculture in the tropics, including history of tropical silviculture, tropical site factors, the distribution, composition and structure of the major tropical forest types, and human intervention in tropical forests; Specialized silviculture in the tropics, including silvicultural systems in tropical rain forests to maintain natural ecosystems or for timber production, afforestation, timber plantations, and silviculture in dry tropical forests; and Tree species, with information on the distribution, ecology, silviculture and uses of 53 tropical species.
