Summary

This Print On Demand book will be sent within 3 weeks (metropolitan France) and in a separate package if you order another paperback book.

Beech, along with oak, is our main hardwood species on the plains. Along with fir, it also dominates the mid-mountain region. It can exceed 40 meters in total height and 250 years in age. This book is entirely devoted to the oak. Chapter after chapter, you'll discover its captivating personality, from the scientific aspects of ecology, physiology, wood technology, genetics and pathology, to the more technical aspects of dendrometry, silviculture and forest management. Forty authors worked in close collaboration to write this ground-breaking specialized work.

Published in 1981, this easily accessible book, with its double table of contents - French and English - and thematic index, is intended for researchers, practitioners, students, forest owners and, ultimately, all curious minds. Everyone should find the information they're looking for, and can, if they wish, supplement their knowledge by exploiting a particularly extensive, albeit carefully selected, bibliography.

The introduction, written by Pierre Martinot-Lagarde, is designed as a synthesis of the book. It gives the main ideas. The authors belong either to research organizations (forestry research department or other departments of INRA, CNRS), teaching establishments (university, ENGREF), or forest management organizations (Office national des forêts).
