This is an excellent publication for general reference and extension purposes throughout the humid tropics. It is indeed a 'royal' treat for those who like tropical trees, nature, ecosystems, people, and traditions. Craig Elevitch and colleagues deserve highest appreciation for their remarkable feat in bringing out this excellent book.-P. K. Ramachandran Nair, Distinguished Professor and Director, Center for Subtropical Agroforestry, University of Florida, Gainesville, Florida
"The optimistic act of planting trees is an antidote to many of the earth's ecological woes. When chosen wisely, trees can also be an economic 'bank account' for future generations and an anchor for traditional cultures. Traditional Trees of Pacific Islands: Their Culture, Environment, and Use is a major resource for that kind of wise planting. The information might seem dense in another format, but here it's kept lively by the smart layout and abundant pictures. The pictures are remarkably instructive, taking you through every stage of the tree's life, including grafting and the occasional transplant-a-mature-tree scenario."-Clear Englebert, feng shui author and consultant, Kealakekua, Hawai'i
"Traditional Trees for Pacific Islands is a wonderful reference for identifying, propagating, harvesting, and developing natural and useful vegetative communities for trees in the Pacific Islands. It is a great guide for the wide range of people, from those interested in home landscaping projects to those in the scientific community geared toward forest management activities. The highly relevant text is richly illustrated with hundreds of full-color photographs of outstanding quality."-EvanaMaile Burt-Toland, Conservation Specialist, Mauna Kea Soil & Water Conservation District/Hawaii Association of Conservation Districts (HACD)
