Abstract
The advancement of economic botany accelerated the search for useful plants. Extensive collections were made from all over the world and plant introductions to different centers were numerous, Quite early, however, it became evident that most species could only be successfully grown under conditions similar to those prevailing in their respective natural Environments. Generally speaking, plants from tropical regions cannot be grown profitably in temperate climates, and plants which grow under high rainfall conditions and on certain soil types do not generally .thrive in arid regions or under different soil conditions. There are numerous examples of crops such as rubber, quinine, cocoa and clove. which , have to be grown in the tropics as they cannot be produced in colder climates.
