Long experience has provided China with much practical knowledge about her complex forest sites and ecology, but only recently has the nation begun systematic research on a substantial scale. Now she is making progress in forest surveys, silviculture, tree breeding, and pest control; and some basic research is under way in dendrology, soils, tree physiology, and biochemistry. Much remains to be done, and if progress is to be speeded it is desirable to keep the research institutions stable, increase the number of experimental forests, strengthen basic research, and promote scientific cooperation within the People's Republic and with other nations.
