About this Item

Fine copy, dj has minute rubbing. Herein is a greatly revised and enlarged handbook based on the near legendary Agriculture Handbook 450, one of the most useful sourcebooks ever published by the U. S. Forest Service, first produced in 1948 and long unavailable. In this new volume the number of genera covered has been more than doubled, and over 1000 new literature citations from around the world have been added. Included in this monumental genus by genus listings are wood plant species native to Canada, Mexico, and the United States and woody plants of other regions planted in North America. Many of the seeds have been collected and germinated for the first time during the past decade. For each genus the authors discuss the collection, harvesting, cleaning, storage, and stratification of seed, methods of testing seed germination; and the subsequent sowing of seed. The wealth of information is accompanied by numerous photographs and drawings of the seed pods, seeds, and seedling plants. Introduces tissue culture techniques for woody plant propagation and exposes the reader to problems of forest regeneration in many environments. Renewed interest in plant material from Asia, and a general awareness of the importance of tropical forest species. Written for forest and range regeneration specialists, urban foresters, horticulturists, research scientists, seed collectors, seed technologists, seed dealers, nursery professionals, forestry students, and serious gardeners. Profusely illustrated. vii/407pp. Bookseller Inventory # 002421
