About this book

Examines the interplay between timber harvesting and wildlife, from hunted and protected habitats to invertebrates and large mammal species, with suggested modifications to existing practices that can ensure a better future for valuable resources.

Conservation of biodiversity is not only a scientific issue but also one of economics. This book bridges the gaps and differing objectives very well, and gives a balanced treatment of a complex and volatile global issues. Biodiversity Will do much to encourage a more informed thoughtfulness by those who are in a position to interact with decision makers who guide and manage logging company practices...Well done! Northeastern Naturalist
