In Pinus: Growth, Distribution and Uses, analyses of the current state of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) and the distribution of pine forests was carried out in three zones of East European plain: a taiga, a temperate broadleaf and mixed forest, and a temperate steppe.

A study is included which focuses on somatic embryogenesis in Yakutanegoyou, Pinus armandii Franch. var. amamiana (Koidz.) Hatusima, an endemic and endangered species in Japan, which was initiated from megagametophytes containing zygotic embryos on a medium supplemented with 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid and 6-benzylaminopurine.

Lastly, the authors gather and present information about pinus cultivation, as well the potential use of pinus bark as an adsorbent to remove Cd2+, Pb2+ and Cr3+ from contaminated water.
