Growing in the tropics and sub-tropics, rattan, or cane as it is commonly known, is a ready source for artisans and is the most vital forest product after timber. Its social significance is no less. It provides sustainable income to some of the most disadvantaged segments of people living in and on the fringes of forests. Ecologically, rattan is very important. It grows in degraded forests, in marginal soil, and reproduces rapidly. It can also be introduced artificially in natural forests without disturbing the existing structure and balance.
