  • Evapotranspiration: Principles and Applications for Water Management

    This book covers topics on the basic models, assessments, and techniques to calculate evapotranspiration (ET) for practical applications in agriculture, forestry, and urban science. This simple and thorough guide provides the information and techniques necessary to develop, manage, interpret, and apply evapotranspiration ET data to practical ...

  • Lessons From Forest Decentralization

    The decentralization of control over the vast forests of the world is moving at a rapid pace, with both positive and negative ramifications for people and forests themselves. The fresh research from a host of Asia-Pacific countries described in this book presents rich and varied experience with decentralization and provides important lessons for ...

  • Cross-sectoral Policy Developments in Forestry (En)

    Forest protection and forestry practices are closely linked to decisions that address measures on climate change, biodiversity and the institutional framework for sustainable development. This rich and multifaceted text documents the progress made in creating the political, economic and social conditions that are necessary for a sustainable and ...

  • Forests and People : Research that Makes a Difference

    Ten years ago, a group of forward thinking men and women created the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) to promote a different type of forestry research-research that would find solutions to the challenges facing our forests and those who use or depend on them.  Forests and People : Research that makes a difference highlights some ...

  • Tropical Forest Ecology

    Research in tropical forestry is confronted with the task of finding strategies to alleviate pressure on remaining forests, and techniques to enhance forest regeneration and restore abandoned lands, using productive alternatives that can be attractive to local human populations. In addition, sustainable forestry in tropical countries must be ...

  • 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. All the major groups of arthropods are treated, as are many important families ...

  • 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 ...

  • Population Genetics of Forest Trees

    This volume contains 19 invited papers from the International Symposium on POPULATION Genetics of Forest Trees which was held in Corvallis, Oregon, USA, July 31-August 2, 1990. The papers summarize and review the contributions of biochemical genetic markers to the understanding of population genetic structure and evolutionary biology of ...

  • Forest Strategy

    Michael Gane’s ground-breaking Forest Strategy combines detailed analysis of the forest sector with modern strategic management principles to develop a vision for sustainable forest management which is both practical and theoretically robust.In the past, lack of understanding at the nexus between the forest sector on the one hand and strategic ...

  • Somatic Embryogenesis in Woody Plants

    These books provide an update to progress on somatic embryogenesis in woody plants including both angiosperm and gymnosperm trees. In the past, most of the information on this subject was scattered in proceedings volumes, journals, biotechnology books, etc. It has been difficult for the researchers and students to obtain comprehensive ...

  • Principles of Plant Nutrition

    This is the 5th edition of a well-established book Principles of Plant Nutrition which was first published in 1978. The same format is maintained as in previous editions with the primary aim of the authors to consider major processes in soils and plants that are of relevance to plant nutrition.This new edition gives an up-to-date account of ...

  • Biology of Adventitious Root Formation

    Special Lecture: The Origin, Diversity, and Biology of Shoot-Borne Roots; P.W. Barlow. The Commercial Importance of Adventitious Rooting: Commercial Application of Adventitious Rooting to Forestry; G.A. Ritchie. Infrastructure for Research: Model Systems for Studying Adventitious Root Formation; S.G. Ernst. Setting the Stage for Rooting: ...

  • Multi-Objective Forest Planning

    Most of the scientific methods devised for forest planning support timber production ignoring the existence of forest functions other than wood production. Fortunately, the realisation that the forest planning methods available today do not correspond to the needs of today's forestry has activated forest researchers to develop and adopt new ...

  • 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 ...

  • Systems Analysis in Forest Resources

    Systems analysis in forestry has continued to advance in sophistication and diversity of application over the last few decades. The papers in this volume were presented at the eighth symposium in the foremost conference series worldwide in this subject area. Techniques presented include optimization and simulation modelling, decision support ...

  • Responses of Northern U.S. Forests to Environmental Change

    The physical and chemical environmental changes associated with global change have increasingly affected the health and productivity of forest ecosystems. Among the important environmental changes manifested by intensive land use and natural disturbances in the Northeastern and North Central United States are escalating levels of atmospheric ...

  • Roots

    The root is the organ that functions as the interface between the plant and the earth environment. Many human management practices involving crops, forests and natural vegetation also affect plant growth through the soil and roots. Understanding the morphology and function of roots from the cellular level to the level of the whole root system is ...

  • Desert Plants

    Vast areas of Earth's landmass exist as deserts, representing quite distinct ecosystems. Desert plants and animals have evolved specialised survival strategies to cope with the harsh environment of high temperatures and scarce water resources. The life-supporting vegetation of deserts is characterised by its unique reproductive biology, metabolism ...
