Aloeswood forest and the maritime world. (Abstracts).

Yamada, Isamu. 1995, Aloeswood forest and the maritime world. Tonan ajia kenkyu. 33(3): 463-468.

Aloes wood, one of the most valuable forest products of the Southeast Asian forest, is a chemical reaction to fungi or to wounds by various species of Aquilaria, most notably Aquilaria malaccensis. The author, who has done a great deal of research in Borneo, has collected all sorts of information about the harvesting and trading of this commodity. The Penan and Dayaks sell their harvest to Chinese traders, who then sell it to merchants from Arabia, Bangladesh, and China. Although the bulk comes from Indonesia and is shipped out through Jakarta, Singapore is the main international center of this trade (Rosemary L. Robson-McKillop).
