The basic objective of the study is to assess the potential socio-economic effect of multipurpose tree species (MPTS) biotechnology research. Three research areas were identified from interviews with various researchers and resource administrators:

  1. tissue culture for planting material production and enhancement,
  2. tissue culture for MPTS genetic improvement, and
  3. use of micro-organisms to enhance MPTS performance.
