17. Agricultural Development of a Tropical Delta: A Study of the Chao Phraya Delta
Takaya, Yoshikazu. 1987.
The vast deltas of Southeast Asia have been called the world’s ricebowl. Apart from the fact that they are low, swampy expanses where floating rice is grown, however, the actual conditions of these deltas have remained largely unknown. This book attempts to portray the state of the ecology and landuse in one of these vast areas, Thailand’s Chao Phraya delta.
