Sustainable development is an important concept underlying many of today's renewable resource policies. Agro-based resources, such as wood and fibre, make up a significant portion of modern renewable resources providing a wide range of options for producing paper and composites. This book discusses strategies for obtaining fibre, using sound ecosystem management principles, from plants including agricultural crops and residues, grasses and recycled biomaterials, in addition to wood.
