The forests of Siberian stone pine are vast and their products, including timber, nuts, and resin are valuable economically. However, managing the forests is problematic, largely due to questions about their morpho-physiological, ontogenetic and eco-geographic circumstances, how they relate to populations in and out of the forest, how they reproduce and how they form resin. Here Vorob'ev (V.N. Sukachev Institutes of Forest and Timber) presents over 20 years of research about the Siberian stone pine, including its ecology, cone production. Growth characteristics, cone yield, resin productivity, and the cone yield, growth and resin productivity of the Siberian stone pine under experiments modifying the relations between lead and root. Vorob'ev closes with recommendations on comprehensive commercial utilizations. Distributed in the US by Enfield.
