Unasylva - Vol. 4, No. 2 - The forest crop of the future

Table of Contents

April-June, 1950

An International Review of Forestry and Forest Products

FAO - The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations

UNASYLVA is prepared by the Division of Forestry and Forest Products and published by the Information Division of FAO at the Organization's temporary headquarters in Washington, D. C. It is printed in Baltimore, Maryland, U.S.A. UNASYLVA is published in English, French, and Spanish. In conformity with the established custom of FAO, all units of measurement used in UNASYLVA are given in the author's figures. The metric equivalents are added, where necessary, in parentheses. UNASYLVA may be obtained from the sales agents listed on the inside back cover. Annual subscription US$ 2.50, single copy 65 cents; rates are payable in local currencies when orders are placed through local sales agents.

Editor's note: It has been found necessary to rearrange the contents of the next two issues of UNASYLVA Numbers 3 and 4. Because the United Nations Conference on Technical Assistance, originally scheduled for the beginning of 1950, has been postponed until 16 May, UNASYLVA will publish the symposium on forestry aspects of the technical assistance program in issue Number 4, instead of in Number 3 as previously announced. Readers will understand that it is obviously desirable to know the outcome of this meeting before discussing the program of FAO and of the member countries with regard to Point 4. The postponement will necessitate other minor changes in the contents of issues Numbers 3 and 4.
