The substantial socio-economic importance of casuarinas ( several members of thefamily Casuarinaceae) has ensured ongoing global interest in research and development ofthis group of nitrogen fixing trees. Plantings are invariably associated with agriculturalsystems and there are about 2 million ha planted in the tropics and sub-tropics, offeringstability to fragile sandy coastal ecosystems and providing services of protection, soil or-ganic matter, poles, fuelwood and commercial wood fiber. Following earlier successfulinternational meetings in Canberra ( 1981) , Cairo ( 1990) and Da Nang ( 1996) , the 4thInternational Casuarina Workshop was held in Haikou, Hainan, People' s Republic ofChina, 21-25 March 2010. The objectives of the meeting were to update and collate cur-rent information and advances in the research and development of this interesting group ofspecies, with particular reference to their impact on smallholder livelihoods, reflected inthe title for the Workshop of: Improving smallholder tivelihoods through improved casua-rina productivity.
