From the reviews:
“ … Approaching this book as an arboriculturist familiar with a significant proportion of Francis Schwarze’s work in this field I was expecting to encounter a helpful literature review that naturally encompassed what had gone before, including papers published in this Journal and of course Fungal Strategies of Wood Decay in Trees(Schwarze et al, Springer-Verlag 2000), as well as one or two chapters setting out new research.
In truth, this is broadly what I found, but such is the importance of Schwarze’s ongoing contribution on this subject that it is impossible to ignore his latest work, especially given that it contains significant new information as well as Schwarze’s remarkable and accessible insight into arboriculture….
