Cupressus and Other Conifers

  • C. J. A. Shelbourne


The two cypress species, Cupressus macrocarpa and C. lusitanica, have been inadequately reported, largely because there were no published papers or PDFs available. A list of internal reports, not made available by Scion because of commercial sensitivity, is shown below the references applicable to this chapter.
