A Review of Dipterocarps: Taxonomy, Ecology and Silviculture
This edited volume provides a detailed introduction to the ecology and silviculture of dipterocarp trees.
conclusions & takeaways
Trees in the family Dipterocarpaceae represent some of the largest, most valuable, and most charismatic trees of tropical forests in Southeast Asia. Due to rainforest destruction as well as logging of these high-value timber species, knowledge about their ecology, growth, and propagation is highly limited. This book is intends to address this knowledge gap by providing an overview of what is already known about dipterocarps and identifying areas of future research.
