Managing Forest Ecosystems #6: Multi-Objective Forest Planning

Managing Forest Ecosystems #6: Multi-Objective Forest Planning Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Most of the scientific methods devised for forest planning support timber production ignoring the existence of forest functions other than wood production. Fortunately, the realisation that the forest planning methods available today do not correspond to the needs of today's forestry has activated forest researchers to develop and adopt new methodologies and approaches, which are specifically aimed at multi-objective situations. This book is about the quantitative approach to multi-objective forest planning. The emphasis is on topics that are rather new and not yet systematically applied in forest planning practice. The topics and methodologies discussed in this book include: measurement of preferences, multiple criteria decision analysis, use of GIS to support multi-objective forest management, heuristic optimization, spatial optimisation, and the measurement of non-wood forest outputs. By reading the book, a planning specialist, student or a researcher will get an insight into some of the current developments in forest planning research.

Book News Annotation:

Per Pukkala (U. of Joensuu, Finland), forestry has come full circle: the newer quantitative-cum-ecological approaches seek the renewal of traditional multi-objective forest use that has been eclipsed by modern single purpose timber production. Eight contributed chapters introduce students, researchers, and planners to models, heuristics, and GIS for management decision support for both wood and non-economic outputs; and present statistical and simulation methods for analyzing multiple goal situations, case studies, and a review of recent Scandinavian research. Lacks an index. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
