Two INBAR Consultations, organized as part of the work of the Production Working Group (the first on identification of priority species and the second on constraints to production), had emphasized the need for genetic enhancement of both bamboo and rattan. As a result, an Expert Consultation was organized by INBAR and co-sponsored by FORTIP (FAO/UNDP Regional Project RAS/ 91/004) and IPGRI (a centre of CGIAR). The Consultation was held in Los Banos, Philippines, 8-11 May 1995. This publication is the result of that consultation.
