Abstract
"Non-timber forest products (NTFP) are attracting more attention in recent years. Recognition that such products also have a role to play in sustainable management of forests is growing. Often termed as minor products, they include a wide variety of items such as fruits, nuts, spices, medicinal extracts, oils, gums, resins, bamboo and rattan, insect and animal products, among others. Proponents for emphasising the use and value of these products would stress that the term minor is indeed a misnomer."
