Biotechnology Applications in Forestry: Forest Microbiology Volume 4 is a comprehensive exploration of harnessing the unique attributes of the microbes in the forest biome and their tree hosts. The volume begins with a brief historical perspective on biotechnology and it’s applications in forestry, the volume introduces the basics of genomics, applied bioinformatics and next generation sequencing, providing a firm foundation before moving to specific approach, application and use chapters.

The fourth volume in the Forest Microbiology series, Biotechnology Applications in Forestry explores opportunities through the use of genetics to expand or improve on many of these positive attributes of forest trees and associated organisms including adaptation to climate change as well as resilience to biotic and abiotic stressors. Novel techniques and current advances in the application of modern biotechniques in tree health protection, mushroom technology, biological control, biochar, bioenergy, Isolate & strain selection, metabolic engineering and commercial application relevant for forest ecosystem are also addressed.
