About this book

Maintaining forest biodiversity by combining protection, management and restoration of forest and woodland landscapes is a central component of sustainable development. This book presents evidence that there are threshold levels for how much habitat loss may be tolerated for viable populations of specialised species to be maintained. Examples are given on how biodiversity assessments can be made.

The three editors are to be congratulated on the enormous task of compiling these 36 papers ... This volume contains an excellent overview of available tools and possible targetsfor forest biodiversity management. Environmental Conservation
