Seeds are incredible because they are smaller versions of the entire plant, concealing the entire tree structure under the skin and allowing them to thrive in favorable conditions. Seeds have been known to humans from the beginning of time, and they have played an important role from nomadic farming to precision farming. These are employed in a variety of ways, including food, decorative, cosmetics, medicine, pharmaceuticals, and so on, harnessing their physiochemical or biological qualities.
Seed descriptions, including phenology, distribution, and basic seed handling techniques for more than 75 tree and plant species utilized in forestry programs, have been compiled and presented with seed photos in this book.
This book will greatly benefit students, field personnel, and others interested in forest nursery activities.
