International Review of Forestry Research, Volume 2 is a collection of reviews and summaries of world literature concerning trees, forests, and forestry. This volume is divided into six chapters, and begins with a brief presentation of the historical developments of forest science and forestry research in East Asia. The succeeding chapters evaluate the influence of spacing on the growth and development of different coniferous tree species, as well as the influence of silvicultural practices on wood quality. These topics are followed by discussions on the various aspects of forest meteorology and the optimal conditions for vigorous root growth. The final chapter looks into the successions of organisms in discoloration and decay processes in living trees. This book will prove useful to forest scientists, research workers, teachers, advanced students, administrators, economists, and forest and land managers.
