Major and intriguing alterations have taken position lately in quite a few points of bio know-how and its purposes to forestry. much more fascinating is the chance of significant ideas that the full box of biotechnology holds for plant development quite often. the significance of those advancements for the forestry quarter is substantial, particu larly considering the fact that forestry technological know-how has no longer got the types of technical and R&D inputs that, say, agriculture has acquired long ago few a long time. Y ct the issues of defor estation in addition to stagnation in yields and productiveness of current forests through the international have gotten more and more obvious, with outcomes and ecological ef fects that reason becoming all over the world situation. guidelines for software of current knowl aspect in biotechnology to the sector of forestry and priorities for destiny study and improvement are, as a result, of substantial price, since it is simply in the course of the adop tion of the appropriate priorities and enlightened regulations that clinical advancements will flow alongside the perfect course, resulting in advancements in forestry practices via out the area. It used to be in contrast backdrop that the Tata strength study Institute (TERI) or ganised an important foreign workshop at the "Applications of Biotechnology in For estry and Horticulture" at New Delhi in January 1988. the current quantity covers the complaints of this foreign workshop.

Can only help to avert the most critical immediate situation but do not offer a permanent solution, for more reasons than one. Firstly, they only help to shift forest degradation to other countries (most probably developing ones) which is not ethical. Secondly, the kind of money required for import may not always be available. Thirdly, wood can become a political weapon like food and oil, and its prices will keep soaring. The best strategy would be to give very high priority to industrial forestry and take steps to extend all help by suitable modification of land laws, etc.
However, once the selected germ plasm is fully field-tested to give high genetic gain, it needs to be multiplied on a large-scale for plantation work. The best selections are often those of individual trees (plus trees) which are progeny tested and evaluated for good growth, tree form, wood quality and disease resistance. These need to be mass-cloned for use in clonal trials, germ plasm conservation, establishment of seed orchards, tree breeding and sometimes for direct plantation work. There is ample evidence that quick and permanent genetic gain can be achieved in a short period by selecting the best germ plasm from nature (plus trees, provenances) and multiplying or mass-cloning it for utilisation in forest plantation work (Dogra, 1981a).

Dogra ABSTRACT World-wide actIvity in forestry shows forest genetics to be the most effective component in tree plantation programs because it produces genetically improved trees that show better growth, tree form, site adaptability, wood quality, crop security and product uniformity. , genotype/site-reactions). The intra-specific genetic variation found within the distributional range of wild tree species forms the basis for selection.
