Abstract

This book has attempted to generally classify genetic factors that affect wood properties. However, several important items do not fit any general categorization and are reported in this chapter. Disease and insect attacks can have a major effect on wood and hybridization is rapidly becoming more important since the hybrids can be used with vegetative propagation techniques. Currently, biotechnology is being used in an attempt to improve wood quality.
