The forest area in most of the countries is declining at an alarming rate and efforts must be immediately taken to increase the production of forest trees. The use of good quality seeds is an absolute necessity which involves the implementation of the advanced forest tree seed technologies. Hence, this volume is edited with the objective to provide knowledge on the aspects of forest tree seed technology and management.
This volume has a compilation of information on the progress that has been made in the areas of seed biology, biotechnological aspects of tree seed regeneration, nursery management techniques for production of elite trees, physiological aspects of seed germination, vigour, seed enhancement, pest management of forest trees, reforestation; ecological aspects like use of tree seeds in water clarification and revegetation of minespoils, selecting candidate plus trees for tree improvement and biological nitrogen fixation.
This volume also provides an understanding of all the aspects of forest tree seed technology and management like brief introduction of the tree species, phenology, fruit and seed, seed collection, seed extraction, seed cleaning and drying, seed grading, seed storage, germination and dormancy, presowing seed treatment, seed testing, and nursery techniques in important tropical and temperate forest trees.
This volume will be useful to the students and teachers at UG and PG level, researchers and forest officers.
