Forestersí Manual of Dipterocarps

C. F. Symington

Revised by P. S. Ashton & S. Appanah




C. F. Symingtonís classic Forestersí Manual of Dipterocarps; completed just before the Second World War, was one of the few English language publications produced during the Japanese occupation.

The book has remained a classic, with an enhanced reprint produced in 1974. This has long since gone out of print. Professor Peter Ashton and Dr. Appanah have now fully revised and updated this volume to include all the latest discoveries. It is unlikely to be superseded as the definitive publication on the dipterocarps of West Malaysia for many years.
