Sustainable Forest Management From Principles to Practice The Earthscan Forest Library Series

Langue : Anglais

Coordonnateurs : Innes John L., Tikina Anna V.

Couverture de l’ouvrage Sustainable Forest Management

Sustainable Forest Management provides the material that will educate students about forestry and the contemporary role of forests in ecosystems and society, and hence set the standard of sustainable forest management worldwide. It provides a comprehensive textbook on the concept and practice of sustainable forest management. The first chapters concentrate on conceptual aspects, relating sustainable forestry management to international policy, particularly the concept of criteria and indicators and how this has determined the practice of forest management. Forest management is considered here to be the management of forested lands, which includes the management of all ecosystems present on such lands. It thus goes considerably further than the traditional forms of management associated with, for example, timber production and logging concessions. Later chapters are more practical in focus, concentrating on the management of the many values associated with forests. Overall the book provides a major new synthesis, which will serve as a textbook for undergraduates of forestry as well as those from related disciplines such as ecology or geography taking a course in forests or natural resource management.
