About the Author:

Jeff Burley took an honours degree in Forestry at Oxford (1961) and an MF (1962) and PhD (1965) at Yale where his thesis concerned the genetic variation of Sitka spruce. He then headed the Forest Genetics Research Laboratory of the Agricultural Research Council of Central Africa for four years, living in Zambia and working also in Malawi and Zimbabwe. He returned to Oxford in 1969 and held three successive posts in Oxford University - Senior Research Officer for Forest Genetics and Tree Improvement; Lecturer in Wood Structure and Properties; Director, Oxford Forestry Institute and Professor of Forestry. Variously in these roles he provided education, research, advice and information plus actual consultancies to many countries and agencies throughout the world. From 1995 - 2000 he was the President of the International Union of Forestry Research Organizations and is now Immediate Past-President; from July 2002 to February 2005 he was chairman of the Commonwealth Forestry Association. He was also Chairman of the British and Irish Hardwoods Improvement Programme from 1999 to 2004. For many years he was Director-at-Large of the International Society of Tropical Foresters. In 1991 he was presented with the CBE (Commander of the British Empire) by the Queen of England for services to international forestry. He is an Honorary Fellow of the Society of American Foresters and of the UK Institute of Chartered Foresters, Honorary Research Professor at the Chinese Academy of Forestry, and Foreign Corresponding Member of the Swedish and Italian Academies. Since 1994 he has been a member (and since 1998 the Chairman) of the Marcus Wallenberg Prize Selection Committee.
