    Description

    This manual is intended primarily to train seed collectors, seed-plant managers, seed analysts, and nursery managers, but it can serve as a resource for any training course in forest regeneration. It includes both temperate and tropical tree species of all intended uses. The manual covers the following topics: seed biology, seed collection, seed handling, seed-quality evaluation, seed protection, seed basics fornurseries, and seed programs. It also includes a course evaluation questionnaire and practical exercises. All parts of the course will not be suitable for all groups. The instructor can choose the pertinent material for presentation. The scope of material is wide enough to serve many purposes.
