      Seeds of Woody Plants of North America is a greatly revised edition
of the legendary U.S.D.A. Agriculture Handbook No. 450, Seeds of
Woody Plants in the United States.  The new edition covers twice the
genera of plants, including new material on native plants used in
environmental plantings and Asian plant materials of importance. The
focus is on propagation from seed; vegetative propagation is not
covered.  Presentation 	of material is condensed, however, and access
to the U.S.D.A. edition may be helpful for literature citations,
 taxonomic information, tables, and chapters on seed biology,
genetics, pollen handling, and harvesting and storage procedures.

     Agroforestry Today is a quarterly magazine that carries reports
from around the world on farming systems that focus on the
integration of trees, crops, and livestock, and the people who raise
them. It is one of the leading  voices for agroforestry worldwide. 
While the content deals mostly with sub-tropical and tropical
agroforestry, much of the information has universal applications
(e.g., mycorrhizae, on-farm research methods, soil-plant
interactions, tree establishment methods, etc.)
