This book guides us through the many events, developments, ideas and personalities that have made their mark on FRIM and on tropical forestry. 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.
