"There are more ways of killing a cat than choking her on butter." Old proverb. The author here describes briefly a method of associating the factors influencing growth and reproduction with the specific standard practices of silviculture in teaching this subject. It is an endeavor to get students to draw freely on fundamental courses, to encourage discussion and analysis rather than to administer silviculture to them by the funnel method.
