ANNOTATION      This books aims to meet two objectives: 1) To present a comprehensive understanding of the material side of engineered-bamboo products, such as raw materials requirements and whether the properties of locally available bamboo can meet such requirements; and 2) To provide information on the whole range of activities in bringing engineered-bamboo products to the market, from propagation, harvesting and processing and coordinating them in a way that would increase market confidence in their availability and quality.
