Cover and Frontmatter

The Tropical Tree Seed Manual is a one-volume reference manual for students, technicians, and scientists that provides comprehensive, internationally compiled data about tropical trees. The emphasis is on species of the Americas; however, a number of tropical tree species from other countries are also included. The manual is divided into two parts. The first part consists of nine chapters written by authorities in each area. The second part presents descriptions of 197 botanically and economically important tropical tree species. The manual is published in both English and Spanish. It contributes to the academic and scientific communities by collating and organizing a wealth of internationally significant research and practical data into one publication. It should be used with similar references on seed technology and handling to give students, technicians, and scientists a thorough understanding of tropical tree seeds.
