Synopsis :

Trees continue to maintain a unique significance in the social, ecological and economic systems of the world - as large, long-lived perennials covering 30 per cent of land on Earth; their very nature dictates their importance. An understanding of forest genetics is essential for providing insight into the evolution, conservation, management and sustainability of both natural and managed forests. Providing a comprehensive introduction to the principles of genetics as important to forest trees, this text integrates the varied sub-disciplines of genetics and their applications in gene conservation, tree improvement and biotechnology. Topics discussed include: genetic variation in natural forest trees, the application of genetics in tree improvement and breeding programs, and genomic sciences and molecular technologies.

Critique:

This book is a must read for anyone curious about topics ranging from conservation genetics to forest tree improvement via traditional or ultramodern methods. Written by White (Univ. of Florida, Gainesville), Adams (Oregon State Univ.), and Neale (Univ. of California, Davis), a top-notch set of experts on the major disciplines of forest genetics, this work does a great job describing why these various disciplines are important and how they need to be interwoven to facilitate advances in gene conservation and forest tree improvement. The well-illustrated book is perfect for advanced undergraduate courses and can serve as a reference manual for professional foresters working on any 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. This volume is destined to be a classic. --D. F.
