In the context of forest sustainability, this book presents the issues related to both global climate change and conservation of biodiversity. It highlights four methodologies and shows how they contribute in overcoming the ecological challenges facing our world. The practical experience presented can be applied to the implementation of successful sustainable forestry policies

Of interest to researchers in environmental science, ecology conservation, forest management and biometrics in addition to forest management professionals.
