The 9" by 12", hard cover, coffee table book is 532 pages, with more than 500 colored photos, 300 + black & white photos, and descriptions of FPL research accomplishments. It also contains a list of most of the people who have worked at the FPL over its 100-year history.
Founded in 1910, the Forest Products Laboratory was created as an interdisciplinary research facility to solve difficult problems important to sustainable forest management and to a diverse wood products industry. The laboratory-a federal facility located on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus-conducts cutting-edge research that has transformed old industries and created new ones, including lumber production, corrugated containers, recycled paper, production of alcohol from wood, commercial cultivation of shiitake mushrooms, and hundreds of other businesses. This book illustrates what can be accomplished when the American public supports a federal laboratory that works in cooperation with universities, industries, and associations. It includes:
