Fisheries and Forestry share many of the same environmental requirements and functional processes essential for their long-term sustainability. This book covers the interaction between these two vital natural resources, looking at the current situation in many important ecosystems and how new practices will affect interactions between these commercially important and environmentally friendly sensitive areas.
A casual glance at the Preface of this truly remarkable book highlights the dedication and enthusiasm by which the two editors, Professors Northcote and Hartman, have approached the writing and organization of this 'landmark' publication. They have drawn together over 56 experts from around the world to contribute to this extensive text. As a major reference and research text within the subject it is likely to become a classic and is certainly recommended for purchase by libraries, research establishments researchers and advanced level students who have an interest in fisheries, forestry and/or ecology. The Bulletin, British Ecological Society, November 2004 "For most regions of the world, the scientific literature describing the linkage between fishes and forests is scattered... To fill this void, Northcote and Hartman mobilized more than four dozen fish and forest experts from around the world... Assembling such a group,...editing disparate manuscripts into a cohesive writing style, and producing a reader-friendly book is a monumental task... The editors have done these tasks very well. In summary, this book makes a significant contribution to the science and natural resource management literature. Its worldwide perspective is an especially important feature. The editors are to be lauded for...producing a book that is well integrated, consistently written, and refreshingly comprehensive. ...a first class book." Environmental Reviews (National Research Council Canada), December 2004 The editors and authors of Fishes and Forestry have provided the first global perspective on fish - forestry interactions. This book is essential reading for any scientist, resource manager, or member of the public interested in forested landscapes. Every university and resource training center should have copies available for the scientists and resource managers of the future.
