Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Forest Conservation Policy: A Reference Handbook chronicles the dramatic history, current status, and global influence of U.S. forest policy. Beginning with the foundations of early forest law during the colonial period through the rise of the Conservation Movement in the wake of 19th century massive forest exploitation, this reference also discusses the environmental challenges that have rewritten recent U.S. forest policy and explores future policy directions.

What are the effects of forest destruction on biological diversity? Has the sustainable forest management movement been effective? Given the fact that individual landowners control the greatest share of U.S. forestland, how are forests on private lands regulated? Students and concerned citizens alike will discover answers to these and other critical questions regarding what is left of the nation's dwindling forests.

Book News Annotation:

US forester and conservationist Sample and Cheng (natural resource history, policy, and sustainability, Colorado State U.-Fort Collins) provide a broad but quick reference to US forest conservation policy for students in forestry, conservation, and environmental policy and for journalists and others. They review the conservation movement and its policy impacts, current issues, personalities, forest facts and data, organizations, and print and non-print resources. A chronology and short glossary are included.
