About this book

Provides a detailed account of the increase in forest resources in Europe over a forty year period, and discusses the implications of this expansion for the future health and vitality of the forests, for forest policy management, and for the economic viability and environmental sustainability of the resource. Kuusela argues that preserving the sustainability and biodiversity of Europe's forest ecosystems can be achieved by maintaining the genetic diversity, density, age and health stability of forests, protecting biotopes of endangered species and establishing cultural biotopes and strictly protected nature reserves.

Re-issue, originally published in 1994.

"This book is a useful reference to anyone interested in the overall trends in forest conditions around the globe."
- Journal of Natural Resource Life Science Education

"The book's breadth of coverage is impressive and it should be useful to those concerned with forests, either as scientists, managers, or teachers."
- Philippe Bourdeau, Environment
