Risk Analysis in Forest Management

by

Risk Analysis in Forest Management Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Due to the long-term planning horizons and the great variety of natural, economic, and operational hazards affecting forest ecosystems, uncertainty and multiple risk are typical aspects of forest management. Applications of risk analysis are surprisingly rare, in spite of the rich assortment of sophisticated forest planning tools that are available today. The objective of this particular volume within the book series Managing Forest Ecosystems is to present state-of-the-art research results, concepts, and techniques regarding the assessment and evaluation of natural hazards and the analysis of risk and uncertainty relating to forest management. Various aspects of risk analysis are covered, including examples of specific modelling tools. The book is divided into three sections covering ecological perspectives, applications in engineering and planning, and methods applicable to economics and policy.

Book News Annotation:

Forest management typically deals with the challenges of uncertainty and multiple risk, but application of risk analysis in this field is not commonplace. Included here are concepts, methods, and case studies relevant to the assessment, evaluation, and modelling of natural hazards connected with forest management. Eight contributions written by specialists from Austria, Finland, Germany, Switzerland, Japan, and the U.S. are organized in three sections on ecosystem and conservation issues, engineering and planning, and economics and policy. Among the topics: wildlife populations, site quality and environmental changes, applying artificial intelligence to forestry, evaluating policy, planning timber harvests, incorporating risk into financial analysis of forest management investments, administering risk (an Austrian case study), and understanding serious hazards in forest management decision making. The volume is not indexed.
