Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The large-scale application of new silvicultural systems has become a political reality in many parts of the world. This involves a gradual tarnsformation of traditional silvicultural practice towards Continuous Cover Forestry (CCF), also know as near-natural forest management, favouring mixed uneven-aged stands, site-adapted tree species and selective harvesting. Today, CCF systems are encountered in many parts of the world, but forest managers often lack the technical support for generating and evaluating treatment options for complex forest structures. Specific CCF-related resource assessment, forecasting and sustainable harvest control techniques have been developed, but details about their use are not widely known. The emphasis in the book is on quantitative methods and modelling.

Book News Annotation:

Along with the large-scale application of new silvicultural systems becoming more common, there has come a shift in practice toward continuous cover forestry (CCF), or near-natural forest management, which favors mixed uneven-aged stands, site-adapted tree species, and selective harvesting. It is contrasted with the other main approach to sustainable forest management, rotation forest management, characterized by standard silvicultural treatments and repetitive cycles of clearcutting. Mostly European forestry scientists share current research results and techniques of the new approach, emphasizing systems engineering and modelling. The text is double spaced, and is not indexed.
