Attention has recently been drawn in this Journal to the lack of achievement in Colonial Forest Botany. The criticisms apply equally to all other forest sciences. Scientific forestry stands in urgent need of planning, co-ordination and, above all, of reorganization. The internal organization of most forest departments requires the A.C.F. to be a jack-of-all-trades and loads him with administrative routine, so that he has no opportunity for scientific work. It is suggested that better use would be made of the training and capabilities of senior officers by a functional organization whereunder every man ol them becomes a specialist and administrative routine is turned over to intermediate grades. Regional teams of super-specialists are advocated to take care of planning and co-ordination and dissemination of knowledge.
