  • Private Sector Forestry: A Review of Instruments for Ensuring Sustainability

    The private sector is an increasingly dominant player in the production of wood, and the market is the main way in which wood products are distributed. Yet, for other forest goods and services such as non-timber forest products, biodiversity, and carbon storage, markets are often not effective. Worse, government and policy failures mean that the ...

  • Conifer Reproductive Biology

    This compendium on conifer reproductive biology is intended as a text supplement for plant biology courses. Such a volume seems timely because knowledge of model flowering plants is expanding so fast that each new plant biology text has less written on conifers than the last. Conifer Reproductive Biology seems needed as a specialized botany ...

  • Vegetation Science in Forestry

    More than a decade has passed since Professor Gisela Jahn completed Volume 12 of the Handbook of Vegetation Science, dealing with the application of vegetation science in forestry, mostly European forestry. The volume was well received by the critics with the exception that they wanted a more diversified demonstration of forestry-related ...

  • Tropical Forest Genetics

    Tropical forests harbour much of the planet’s genetic resources, and therefore their conservation and sustainable utilization are matters of global concern. Evolutionary processes in both untouched and managed forests are described, as is the role of genetics in plantation forestry and conservation. This book provides a solid scientific basis for ...

  • Boron in Soils and Plants: Reviews

    Boron in Soils and Plants: Reviews is the most up-to-date and comprehensive review of our knowledge of boron in soils, plants and animals. This volume coincides with a period of significant progress in boron research. It covers recent advances in the identification of the physical and chemical role of B in the cell wall, the characterisation ...

  • Concepts in Mycorrhizal Research

    Mycorrhiza will be the focus of research and study for the coming decade. Successful survival and maintenance of plant cover is mostly dependent on mycorrhization. During the last decade about ten books have appeared on various aspects of mycorrhiza, including two on methodology. The present book has been compiled to give a complete and ...

  • Forest Policies and Social Change in England

    Forestry has been witness to some dramatic changes in recent years, with several Western countries now moving away from the traditional model of regarding forests merely as sources of wood. Rather these countries are increasingly recognizing their forests as multi-purpose resources with roles which go far beyond simple economics. In this ...

  • Ectomycorrhizal Fungi

    Mycorrhiza - the symbiosis between plants and fungi - plays a key role in plant life. This book reviews for the first time the current knowledge of 15 individual genera of ectomycorrhizal fungi. It is unique in that each chapter is dedicated to a single fungal genus, each written by internationally recognized experts on the respective fungal ...

  • Multiple Use of Forests and Other Natural Resources

    This volume comprises eighteen papers dealing with the theory and application of modern decision-making and management planning of multiple use of forestry and other natural resources in the landscape. Generally, an economic approach is used as implemented by operations research methods, but broader contexts are applied too, e.g. ecosystem ...

  • Encyclopedia of Entomology

    The Encyclopedia of Entomology brings together the talents of over 350 distinguished entomologists from 36 countries to provide a detailed, global overview of insects and their close relatives, including taxonomy, behavior, ecology, physiology, history, and management.

Sustainability is analyzed from its diametrically opposite deforestation point of view. A multilevel approach is adopted to take into account that the causes of deforestation occur at the local, national and international levels. ...

  • Applied Population Biology

    An increasing variety of biological problems involving resource management, conservation and environmental quality have been dealt with using the principles of population biology (defined to include population dynamics, genetics and certain aspects of community ecology). There appears to be a mixed record of successes and failures and almost ...
