About this book

Deals with the plants of South-East Asia that produce exudates - products generally obtained by tapping trees (resins, gums, latexes). In addition to the botany, ecology and management, the different tapping techniques are described in detail and put in perspective in the introductory chapter. In 15 papers, species are described extensively, including the ones yielding copal, pine resin, damar, elemi, benzoin, gurjun balsam, sepetir wood oil, jelutong, natural rubber, and gutta-percha.
