` The volume will be useful for investigators engaged in foretry research and is recommended as a good addition for libraries. ' H. Hattemer and P. Srivastava, Plant Breeding, 1990 ` The book will undoubtedly be an excellent source of information not only for researchers engaged in genetics and breeding of woody plants but for researchers in plant physiology, genetics, and related branches in general. ' Biologia Plantarum, 33:1, 1991
