About this book

When Aquilaria trees become infected with mold they produce a dark, aromatic resin in response to the attack, resulting in dark, resin-embedded hardwood commonly called gaharu. Tapping the Wealth from Karas (Aquilaria malaccensis) Tree covers comprehensive information from the historical background on the beginning of gaharu utilization and the conservation status, botanical and ecological characteristics of the species, procurement, seed handling, planting materials production and nursery practices.
