Trees and Forests - A Colour Guide
Bryan B. Bowes
Trees are a dominant feature of life on earth, and yet are under severe threat.
The aim of this timely volume is to gather together aspects of trees, forests,
their development, environments and ecology that are usually considered separately.
Chapters deal with various world habitats, ranging from northern coniferous forests to tropical rainforests.
Topics include tree morphology, diseases and pests, forest ecology, management, surgery, propagation
and conservation. Concise text is illustrated throughout by colour photos, diagrams and summary tables.
Hardcover 320 pp ISBN 9781840760859
