Forest Economics

Forest Economics Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Forestry cannot be isolated from the forces that drive all economic

activity. It involves using land, labour, and capital to produce goods

and services from forests, while economics helps in understanding how

this can be done in ways that will best meet the needs of people.

Therefore, a firm grounding in economics is integral to sound forestry

policies and practices.

This book, a major revision and expansion of Peter H. Pearse's

1990 classic, provides this grounding. Updated and enhanced with

advanced empirical presentation of materials, it covers the basic

economic principles and concepts and their application to modern forest

management and policy issues. Topics range from valuation of forest

investments and unpriced forest goods and services to property rights,

taxation, and global issues of forests and the environment. Review

questions and suggestions for further readings appear at the end of

each chapter.

Forest Economics draws on the strengths of two of the

field's leading practitioners who have more than fifty years of

combined experience in teaching undergraduate and graduate courses in

forest economics in the United States and Canada. Its comprehensive and

systematic analysis of forest issues makes it an indispensable resource

for students and practitioners of forest management, natural resource

conservation, and environmental studies.

Daowei Zhang is a professor of forest economics

and policy in the School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences at Auburn

University. Peter H. Pearse is a professor emeritus at

the University of British Columbia, a forester RPF (Ret), and a member

of the Order of Canada.
