About this book

While most efforts at biodiversity conservation have focused primarily on protected areas and reserves, the unprotected lands surrounding those areas and reserves are equally important to preserving biodiversity and maintaining forest health. Lindenmeyer and Franklin argue that the conservation of forest biodiversity requires a comprehensive and multiscaled approach that includes both reserve and non-reserve areas. They lay the foundations for such a strategy, bringing together the latest scientific information on landscape ecology, forestry, conservation biology and related disciplines.
