Editorial Reviews

Aus den Rezensionen:". Sehr gründlich wird in Kapitel 10 auf fast 40 Seiten die Mykorrhiza der Fichte mit schönen Farbabbildungen dargestellt. . Das Buch . ist sehr weitgehend auf die Verhältnisse in Polen abgestimmt, und man erfährt viel über die umfangreiche Behandlung der Fichte in der wissenschaftlichen Literatur dieses Landes. Das über 2.000 Titel umfassende Literaturverzeichnis legt davon Zeugnis ab. Neben dem Sachverzeichnis gibt es noch einen 16-seitigen Autoren-Index. Das Werk ist einwandfrei hergestellt und mit überwiegend guten Abbildungen versehen ." (Ernst Röhrig, in: Forstarchiv, 2007, Vol. 78, S. 231)
