In recent years, scientists and development specialists have “discovered” many previously neglected nitrogen-fixing trees with exciting potential to sustain and improve the soil, enhance crop production and provide valuable products. Prominent among the trees attracting increasing attention is the genus Erythrina, distributed throughout the tropics. Many of the 113 Erythrina species are used in agro-forestry systems as live fences, windbreaks, shade or support for other plants. They improve the soil and provide animal fodder, human food, medicine and wood products. Their unique flowers and seeds also make them popular as ornamentals and for handicrafts. Researchers, often working in isolation, have screened Erythrina species and provenances for growth potential under different site conditions. Some have conducted detailed studies of specific tree characteristics. As experience and research results have accumulated, the need has become urgent to bring this information together and make it available to a wider community. This work presents 55 papers on Erythrina research and development activities.
