This book addresses the question: how can local and indigenous communities maintain the balance between their societies and their forest environments when faced with increasing external pressures, rising populations and growing demands for basic needs and cash? The case studies in this volume come from all around the world and include tropical, temperate and boreal zones. They describe the efforts to adapt local forest management systems to changing circumstances.
