Non-Timber Forest Products, more particularly those of medicinal value are among major sources contributing to the economic development. These also play an important role in the socio-economic uplift, improvement of cultural lifestyle and health care of tribal and rural people. The ever growing demand of these products has put a great pressure on the resources. The situation has been further aggravated by destructive and unsustainable harvesting and inefficient trade practices. The impact of these practices has been relatively less understood and there is a general lack of strategies for achieving sustainability in collection and conservation. The book incorporates articles dealing with 'Resource Management' in different States of India.
The book attempts to bridge the gaps related to understanding with regard to NTFP Management. It provides good and updated reference material to Foresters, Government and Non-Government Agencies, researchers and individuals interested in natural resources and sustainability thereof. The book highlights the modus for ensuring quality participation of the community in resource management by sharing traditional and contemporary knowledge. It may trigger further research and provide help in planning effective policy interventions for effective management of Non-Timber Forest Resources.
