Leucaena: miracle tree or myth? 18'30' minute slide video
Now that the limitations of Leucaena leucocephala are apparent and its 'miracle tree' reputation increasingly tarnished, researchers and growers are questioning reliance on a single species with a narrow genetic base and are looking for alternatives. However, a slide video entitled Leucaena: miracle tree or myth? explores the rich diversity of Leucaena as a genus, revealing the potential of lesser-known species from Mexico and Central America. The 18'30' minute slide video has been produced by the Oxford Forestry Institute with support from the Forestry Research Programme of the UK Overseas Development Administration (ODA).
