Andrew Leslie reviews the book 'Plantation Forestry in the Tropics', third edition. by Julian Evans and John Turnbull, Oxford University Press, 2004 (ISBN 0198509472).

This is the third edition of Plantation Forestry in the Tropics, the first having been published over 20 years ago. In the intervening years an increase in the demand for wood has seen the area of forest plantations in the tropics increase considerably and now some half the area under plantations is in the tropics and subtropics. The importance of plantations in general is likely to increase further as it is expected that plantations will become the principal source of wood fibre in the near future.
