Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This timely volume includes an insightful description of the current situation and recent trends, followed by a thorough examination of major policy and program issues affecting nonfederal forests. Among these are emerging environmental concerns such as forest fragmentation and large-scale climate change, as well as issues of economic importance, such as the availability of timber supplies.

Book News Annotation:

Describes the federal government's increased role in managing nonfederal forests, and examines major policy and program issues. Addresses such issues as reforestation, wetlands disruption, biodiversity protection, environmental concerns, large-scale climate change, and the availability of timber supplies. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews@booknews.com)

Synopsis:

The federal role in the management of nonfederal American forests was once relatively simple: to assist in the prevention and control of wildfires. The administrative structure to carry out this role was similarly uncomplicated, with most programs under the aegis of the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

In recent years, however, both the management and administrative landscapes have changed dramatically. Responsibility for the federal role in nonfederal forests has been expanded to include a number of cabinet departments and independent agencies, which must address critical issues such as reforestation, wetlands disruption, and biodiversity protection. With two-thirds of all U.S. forests on nonfederal lands, these issues are becoming increasingly more important.

Now, a first-of-its-kind examination of the federal role in nonfederal forest management, Forested Landscapes in Perspective presents a comprehensive look at the current landscape and recommends improvements that best serve public and private interests.
