    Bamboo Books. The bamboo books suggested in my recommendations and book reviews are for subjects about bamboo such as: bamboo crafts, flooring, bamboo plant books, gardens and gardening with bamboo, bamboo building and construction books, furniture, fishing rods, books on caring for bamboo and Japanese garden design. Its stems resemble bamboo (thus the nickname), but it is not a true bamboo. You may not see any resemblance to Japanese barberry, but the plant is actually in the barberry family. Nandina produces white or pinkish blossoms that occur in terminal clusters. During the fall, heavenly bamboo displays red fall foliage; in winter, it bears red berries.

      Bamboo Land is a well established bamboo, ginger and heliconia specialised nursery featuring a collection of the world's finest non-invasive bamboos. All varieties (including gingers and heliconias) are growing for display on our 50 acre property with 10 acres of landscaped tropical parklands, allowing customers, enthusiasts and general public.   Outstanding initiatives that are part of the value chain of bamboo in Ecuador.

More than six hundred species of bamboo grow in Japan, including Phyllostachys bambusoides, which can grow to a height of 15–22 m and a diameter of 10–15 species are endemic to Japan.

Although defined as a subfamily of grasses, bamboo is characterized by its woody culm and a root system that can form either thick, slowly spreading clusters or more aggressive runners. Operation Downfall was the proposed Allied plan for the invasion of the Japanese Home Islands near the end of World War planned operation was cancelled when Japan surrendered following the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the Soviet declaration of war and the invasion of Manchuria.

The operation had two parts: Operation Olympic and Operation Coronet. Bamboo in Japan is important, in part, because it hasn't been done before. Earlier English-language books on the topic of bamboo covered part of the story, but not all.

This book offers everyone a chance to really read about this incredible plant in Japan and its many guises. Bamboo enchants, and Bamboo in Japan lets the reader experience this. Because bamboo can grow on otherwise marginal land, bamboo can be profitably cultivated in many degraded lands.
