Managing Forest Ecosystems #7: Systems Analysis in Forest Resources Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Systems analysis in forestry has continued to advance in sophistication and diversity of application over the last few decades. The papers in this volume were presented at the eighth symposium in the foremost conference series worldwide in this subject area. Techniques presented include optimization and simulation modelling, decision support systems, alternative planning techniques, and spatial analysis. Over 30 papers and extended abstracts are grouped into the topical areas of (1) fire and fuels; (2) networks and transportation; (3) forest and landscape planning; (4) ecological modeling, biodiversity, and wildlife; and (5) forest resource applications. This collection will be of interest to forest planners and researchers who work in quantitative methods in forestry.

Book News Annotation:

Though some themes have persisted since the first conference in 1975, the most recent also demonstrates the expansion of systems analysis into such areas as fire and fuels management, wildlife habitat and its ecological applications, and landscape planning. The number and variety of techniques have also evolved, increasing the sophistication of their solution methods and their capacity to address larger and more complex questions. Among the topics are comparing potential fuel treatment trade-off models, a decision support system for forest ecosystem management in Portugal, and estimating and mapping five forest attributes with satellite ancillary data. The 31 papers are not indexed. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
