Sustainable forest management is one of the most contentious issues in environmental management because it inevitably involves many complicated biological and economic factors, along with political and legal issues, and the added difficulty of different sets of terms, theories, and principles.
In an attempt to bridge the gap between the economic and biological sciences, this much-needed book provides a critical synthesis of the complex social, economic, and conservation issues involved in forest management, placing them in an ordered framework that will facilitate decision making. The
book integrates knowledge relating to the subject across a wide array of disciplines and will be important reading for all those interested in contemporary environmental management, environmental science, natural resources, land management, and forest science.
