Balancing Act: Environmental Issues in Forestry

by

Balancing Act: Environmental Issues in Forestry Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Balancing Act Hamish Kimmins calls for a balanced, more objective approach to forestry issues. He argues that these issues are too often debated without any common understanding of what forestry is really all about or about how forest ecosystems work. This new edition of the bestselling book has been revised to reflect new thinking about sustainable forestry and includes three completely new chapters. The new chapters look at the on-going debate over the meaning of 'sustainable forestry, ' 'respect for nature, ' 'ecosystem management, ' and ecosystem 'health and integrity.'. This new edition of Balancing Act goes further in clarifying the issues at the heart of the forestry/environment debate. Readers will gain a new understanding of how our forest ecosystems work and how they can be managed sustainably.

Book News Annotation:

Reflects changes in thinking and emphasis since the first edition, five year ago. Downplays such issues as herbicides and slash burning as no longer critical, and expands the discussions in such areas as sustainable forestry, respect for nature, ecosystem management, and health and integrity. Assumes no background in science. The CiP data shows the author as J. P. Kimmins. Canadian card order number: C96- 910756-0.
