In the 26 years of working with bamboo, I have met several good people, working in thefield of bamboo, from all over the world. Many of them have become my cherishedfriends. First among these are those from the National Bamboo Project (later Funbambu)in Costa Rica; I could list enough names to fill up this page. Apart from these CostaRican friends, I will mention here only four people: Wim Huisman, my professor andfirst promoter; Walter Liese, who was a member of my Ph.D. committee and with whomI have spent many enriching hours working on bamboo in several places; RamanujaRao, with whom I have had as close a working relationship as two scientists can have;and Arun Kumar, who has done a tremendous editing work on the typescript of thisbook. I would also mention here that this book would never have been written but forthe understanding and support of my wife Loek.J.J.A. Janssen
