- We can order this
Forest trees cover one third of the global land surface, constitute many ecosystems, and play a pivotal role in the world economy. This volume details Populus trees, pines, Fagaceae trees, eucalypts, spruces, Douglas fir and black walnut, and offers a first-ever detailed review of Cryptomeria japonica. It thoroughly discusses innovative strategies to address the inherent problems of genome analysis of tree species.

From the reviews:
"Editor Kole is a self-described novice to trees, he has put together a fine volume of contributions by an impeccable set of tree molecular experts from around the world. The volume presents genetic linkage maps for all major species, and quantitative-trait loci (QTL) maps for most. The applications of these maps for breeding efforts are clearly stated. This will be a valuable book for anyone interested in tree improvement and molecular biology. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Lower-level undergraduates through professionals/practitioners; general readers." (D. F. Karnosky, CHOICE, Vol. 45 (7), 2008)
"Much of the material presented is quite technical and will be of interest or intelligible primarily to specialists. ... The editor of this series of books comments, in his general preface, that `the huge volume of information generated on genome analysis and improvement is dispersed mainly through the pages of periodicals ... is a need for a ready reference for students and scientists alike that could provide more than just a glimpse of the present status of genome analysis and its use for genetic improvement.'" (Jonathan Cornelius, International Forestry Review, Vol. 11 (3), September, 2009)
