Scientific information on the management of forest genetic resources is one commodity that should be freely exchanged among nations. American foresters and breeders can learn much about the benefits and risks of clonal plantations from the Japanese, who have a long history of vegetative Propagation techniques and tree improvement programs despite the high cost of management and the reliance on imported wood. Conservation of genetic resources of indigenous forest species is also important in Japan, and excellent research in all forestry disciplines continues.
