CABI  October 2005  



Hardback  256 pp  ISBN 9780851990026      £65.00
Drawing on a host of international case-studies, this detailed book examines the interactions between forestry and environmental change, from a social, economic and political perspective. It presents novel insights into little-studied topics such as the influence of forest reserves on timber prices, the relationship between forestry and aboriginal populations, the certification of forest management and wood products, and the issues facing forests in transition countries. It also brings together the latest thinking on a wide range of topics including deforestation in temperate and tropical forests, the application of forest zoning as an alternative to multiple use forestry, capital management, establishment of large-scale reserves in temperate and boreal forests and social revolutions in forest management.

Readership: Advanced students and researchers in forestry, climate change and natural resource economics.
