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. Trees - A Colour Guide is designed to appeal to professionals and students in plant science, plant biology, ecology and conservation, to those working in forestry and arboriculture and to interested non-specialist readers.
