From the preface:
"NMBA launched the first edition of the Field Guide The Bamboo Book in February 2004. It received raving reviews from cultivators, researchers, bamboo entrepreneurs and government agencies. The second edition has also been sold out. NMBA now feels pleasure in presenting the third edition of The Bamboo Book for the use and reference of all who are intensely associated with bamboo.
In the third edition, an additional chapter on Guadua angustifolia, a bamboo species found in South America and introduced by NMBA in Kerala and Karnataka has been included. In addition, compiled information on uses of various bamboo species, and a list of NMBA supported Vegetative Propagated Centers for availability of bamboo plants is also included in the Appendices.
NMBA expects that this edition will further the interest of a large number of bamboo communities for easier identification of bamboo species and in turn promote overall development of bamboo sector in the country."
