The Scientific Forestry and the associated management practices received significant attraction around the world which resulted in the birth of professional forestry education. In India, the professional forestry education was started in the year 1985 and currently offered at several State Agricultural and Central Universities. The Forestry and Agroforestry has also been incluzed as a subject in various under graduate and Post graduate program of State Agricultural and other conventional universities. This professional education in forestry and introduction of forestry courses to other degree programmes demand a comprehensive text book encompassing all the facets of forests. Against this backdrop, the current book on Introduction To Forestry & Agroforestry is conceived to cater to the needs of professionals in B. Sc (Forestry), B.Sc (Agriculture), B.Sc. (Horticulture) and B.Sc (Sericulture) courses offered at State Agricultural Universities and undergraduate programme of Botany and Environmental Science courses offered at Conventional Universities. Besides, the book can also act as a fast and ready made reference material for the graduates aspiring for State and Central Forest Service Examinations. For any beginner in professional forestry education and competitive examinations, this book will be an asset to understand and learn the principles and practices of forestry coupled with other recent developments in forestry sector.
