Graham Powell has written an insightful and beautifully illustrated book on the lives of conifers. I have always had a special fondness for the conifers and their mystical and inspiring representatives like the massive redwoods and the bleak denizens of the boreal forests, the spruces. Powell’s book does them their well-deserved justice.

Shoot development was investigated on branches of Larix laricina (Du Roi) K. Koch trees growing in their 8th year in two plantations and in a natural stand approximately 12 years old. Expansion of throughout-crown series of short and long shoots was measured weekly, and later colour change and natural fall of leaves were assessed.

Comments:

Zinnthi
Prof. Powell has a tour de force of illustrations in all stages of the life (and death) cycle of selected major conifer species of eastern North America. His charts and diagrams are equally instructive -- and all in one bound volume. What a great book for a course in conifers of eastern North America this one is. Prof. Powell is working on a similar work for selected hardwood species of the same geographic range. Well recommended.
