Towards Forest Sustainability

Towards Forest Sustainability Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The world's montane forests are vitally important for conservation and water catchment. Because logging regimes have significant impacts on biodiversity as well as water quality and water quantity, the management of these forests has often been a major source of conflict amongst rural communities, government agencies, and conservationists. Although much information on ecologically sustainable managment practices is now available, further organizational change and policy tranformation is needed to see a transition to sustainable practices inplemented on the ground.

Towards Forest Sustainability contains practical essays by some of the world's leading forests ecologists and managers from the United States, Canada, Finland, Sweden, Australia, and New Zealand. The authors describe the changes that have taken place in forest management?highlighting what worked, what didn't, and the lessons that have been learned.

This unique collection of essays documents the drivers of the change in the logging industry and the resulting outcomes, both the good and the bad. The book provides real-world insights from an international perspective into government policy, industrial concerns, and conservation and biodiversity issues.

Book News Annotation:

Including contributions from specialists in forest economics and policy, water management, and timber production as well as ecologists and conservation professionals, Lindenmayer (Center for Resource and Environmental Studies, Australian National U.) and Franklin (ecosystem science, U. of Washington) present 12 papers that explores aspects of temperate forest management in the U.S., Canada, Australia, Australia, Finland, Sweden, and New Zealand. Partly because the papers come from a August 2002 conference held in Australia, the Victorian montane ash forests of southeastern Australia receive particular attention.
