A Compendium of Chinese Bamboo This is the book we have all been waiting for. As expected, the experts from China have crafted a classic volume based on clear descriptions and the best photos of mature bamboo species I have ever seen in one place. Altogether, 39 genera and more than 500 species are included in this book. The morphological characteristics, geographical distribution and usage of every species is described fully and accurately. The compendium is the most complete monograph in the field of bamboo research up to the present. There are more than 400 color photos displaying 31 genera, 209 species and 50 varieties and forms. Most of the photos are close up views of bamboo shoots allowing for their use in bamboo identification. Many of the photos show the leaf, flower and culm distribution. A lot of the bamboo photographs are of beautiful species and varieties that have never been seen in the U.S.A.

NEW BOOK -   Discovering Bamboo - Northwest nurserywoman, Jackie Heinricher published a nice catalog useful to all gardeners who have caught the bamboo bug. Considering there are hundreds of bamboo species and varieties availbale to the gardener, she has listed 28 clumping and 29 running popular bamboos species. Plenty for most gardeners and their landscapes in temperate and mild Pacific Coast climates. Lots of "How to" information to get you started. I personally like the  selection guide to  help narrow down the choices.

INTERNATIONAL BAMBOO WORKSHOPS

1985 Recent Research on Bamboos - Proceedings of the International Bamboo Workshop, Hangzhou, People's Republic of China-October 6-14, 1985.
Since Hangzhou, there have been numerous International Bamboo Workshops: 1988 - Cochin, India, 1991 - Chiangmai , Thailand, 1995 - Ubud, Bali and San Jose, Costa Rica, 1998. I place great importance on these proceedings from Hangzhou, if only for it being the only one in a temperate region. Many of the papers are on topics of bamboo production with relevance for the new bamboo growers in the USA. The species most represented in the proceedings is Phyllostachys heterocycla pubescens or what we call Moso bamboo.
Reprinted with a new cover, Recent Research on Bamboos is available again in the USA. The book is 7.5 X 10 inches, 393 pages, B & W photos, numerous drawings and published jointly by The Chinese Academy of Forestry and the International Development Research Centre of Canada. $10

1988 Bamboos: Current Research Published jointly by the Kerala Forest Research Institute, India and the International Development Research Centre, Canada.
This edition is the latest compilation of research papers presented at the Third International Bamboo Workshops convened at Cochin, India in 1988. As with the previous edition (Recent Research on Bamboos), the book is divided into various aspects of bamboo research. Country reports and bamboo resources papers by predominantly Indian authors outline the state of the bamboo resources in international, regional and ecological niches. The forestry and horticultural fields are represented in chapters devoted to management of bamboo forests, growth and yield of bamboos, propagation of bamboos, and diseases and pests of bamboos. A good percentage of the articles are on bamboo preservation treatments, physical properties of bamboo and its fiber. Bamboo as a building material for housing with a structural design code is described. Bamboo paper, board, pipe for water supply and the economics of bamboo based industry in the Indian sub-continent and Southeast Asian region outline bamboo affairs in that part of the world.

Bamboo Furniture - Phyllostachys aurea: A Manufacturing Process Manual by Virginia Carmiol Umaña of Costa Rica
I first purchased a copy in Spanish at the 1998 International Bamboo Congress in San Jose, Costa Rica. My first impression was "I wish this was in English". My wish has now come true with a bonus, the English version has 12 additional pages of color plates. Architect and author, Virginia Carmiol begins with general bamboo information that is so important for the reader new to bamboo. This includes the categories of utilization we are familiar with: construction, food, architecture, engineering, craft, music, medicine and paper making. She also provides a basic description of bamboo's characteristics as a plant.
    The beneficial theme of Golden bamboo or Phyllostachys aurea is custom made for  North Americans. In many areas, it is considered a pest by the locals. Here is our manual to put all the available Golden bamboo to good use by bamboo craftspeople. Costa Rica's climate ranges from tropical low lands to temperate cloud forest. While Phyllostachys aurea thrives above 6000 feet elevation it will also grow, but smaller, down to about 800 feet. Ms. Carmiol also tells us about Bambusa vulgaris, Dendrocalamus giganteus and the Guaduas. Interestingly, besides the ever popular, G. angustifoia, she also mentions G. aculeata, G. amplexifolia and G. paniculata.
    In the final chapter of Part 1 she tells of the story of bamboo development in Costa Rica. We find how the National Bamboo Project (FUNBAMBU) was established. Brian Erickson is credited by giving the project its own furniture style. However, earlier credit for the use of bamboo and furniture styles came from the Taiwan Technical Crafts Mission created in 1981. Even as early as the 70's, the University of Costa Rica through architect Rafael Angel Garcia and agronomist Mayra Montiel began developing interest in bamboo.
    It is noted that the government's efforts were primarily on species beneficial for the  construction of housing - these being Guadua and Dendrocalamus. In Costa Rica (and in Mexico) there are established artisan centers producing furniture from Phyllostachys aurea that vainly seek government support. These craftspeople are facing design problems, overharvesting and pressure from outside bamboo cutters, low wages, and cheap imports from China and Korea.
    The rest of the book is devoted to the specifics of Phyllostachys aurea and the crafting of bamboo furniture. She begins with the botanical characteristics, cultivation, climate and plantation care, then moves on to describe the harvesting, processing, drying and curing the Golden bamboo culms. The bamboo furniture design is mostly of a traditional Chinese style, as taught by the Taiwan Mission. It is constructed entirely with simple tools. Great detail is spent on the steps required to build the furniture. These steps include cutting, perforations, curves, bending, assembly, pinning, joints, channels, binding, ties and ergonomic dimensions. Examples are given of chairs, tables, beds, panels, shelves, stands, mirrors, folding screens and more. Most of the examples represent the work of the Retana brothers' factory located near the City of San Isidro de General.
The book is highly illustrated in a step-by-step manner with drawings and photographs. There are 182 B&W photos and illustrations. The English version includes 31 color plates (Spanish does not). It is paper back and printed on glossy paper. The dimensions are 8.5 X 8.5 inches. It consists of 182 pages. LAST COPIES IN PRINT!
