Tropical Nursery Manual Published

We're proud to announce that the 376-page Tropical Nursery Manual has been published and is available free online.

This effort stems from a weeklong nursery training workshop for Pacific Islanders that we held in Hilo > 10 years ago. Katie Friday (USFS) helped to organize it. This experience had a large role in linking Purdue faculty Douglass Jacobs and other cooperators into working in Hawaii and the tropics. This event was part of the 'ancient roots' of TropHTIRC and an early deliverable of the TropHTIRC. It's a comprehensive work that should be useful to managers for many years to come.
