Aims & Scope
Advances in Bamboo Science is an interdisciplinary journal covering all aspects of bamboo, ranging from the growth and silviculture of the product, processing technologies, and new products. The potential of bamboo as a nature-based solution to many of the environmental problems facing the world is being increasingly recognized. Bamboo is found in many temperate, sub-tropical and tropical countries around the world, and is being increasingly cultivated because of the wide range of products associated with it. The journal accepts original research and state-of-the-art reviews on the classification, physiology, growth, properties, ecology and management of bamboo, its use in bioremediation and habitat restoration, and also has a strong focus on the products derived from bamboo, including foodstuffs, medicines, cosmetics, biochemicals, textiles, utensils, papers and tissues, flooring and cabinetry, and construction materials. Research examining the cultural, socio-economic and regional impacts of bamboo will also be considered.
