CRITIQUE PAPER TEMPLATE Title: Bamboo Shoot Resources of the Philippines: I. Edible Bamboo and the Current Status of the Local Bamboo Shoot Industry Background Information Author- Caasi-Lit Merdelyn T Mabesa Linda B Candelaria Roy B Source - - resources-philippines-i-edible-bamboo-current-status-local-bamboo-shoot- industry {Retrieved August 12, 2018} Year - 2010 Abstract This is the first comprehensive report on bamboo resources in the Philippines as edible bamboo shoots. Twenty-six provinces were visited along the creeks and rivers, bamboo plantations and market places to determine the predominant bamboo species and the species with quality shoots. The current status of the local bamboo shoot industry was described as well as the regional preferences, processing, storage and bamboo shoot recipes noted. The study used primary data gathered through personal interviews, designed questionnaire and actual field surveys. The common species found in the area are all used as vegetable shoots. These were Bambusa blumeana J.A. & J.H. Schultes, Bambusa vulgaris var vulgaris Schrader ex Wendland, Gigantochloa levis (Blanco) Merr., Gigantochloa atter (Hassk.) Kurz), Dendrocalamus asper (Schultes (f.) Backer ex Heyne, Bambusa merrilliana (Elmer) Rojo & Roxas and Bambusa philippinensis (Gamble) McClure. Bamboo shoots are called by many local names and the common names across the country are `labong', `dabong' `rabong', `uvug', etc. `Kawayang tinik' or B. blumeana was the most predominant species in most regions and also the most popular edible species. `Kawayang kiling' or Bambusa vulgaris was the second most common but only third in rank as edible species. The current status of bamboo shoot industry revealed that it is still at its infancy stage. The processing and marketing aspects of bamboo shoot follow the traditional system. Significant observations during the study were discussed and the most alarming observation was the dwindling population of bamboo in natural stands especially along the major and minor rivers

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
