Data and information on bamboo resources in Ghana are scattered and in various forms. This impedes quality research work and effective dissemination of information on this valuable resource. Especially in an era where there is the introduction of new courses in Non-timber forest products especially bamboo in most forestry related educational institutions in Ghana, the publication of the handbook of bamboo resources in Ghana will improve access to information and data on bamboo in Ghana. The book titled ‘Bamboo Resources in Ghana: Diversity, properties, products and opportunities” was published with financial support of ITTO fellowship (Ref No 010/10A). It is divided into eight chapters with each chapter comprising data and information on different aspects of bamboo resources in Ghana.
