It traces the history of the Institute through the colonial period, World War I, the rubber boom, the great depression, World War II, the Japanese Occupation, the post-war recovery, the Malayan Emergency, Independence and thereafter, and the development of the railways, tin, rubber, housing and energy industries. Research themes are grouped into five separate chapters: natural forest management, wood-based industries, non-timber forest products, plantations parks and gardens, and biodiversity.
