In Europe complete regimes for regenerating, tending, and harvesting forests called 'silvicultural systems' have been successfully developed. Some are now also being used in tropical and sub-tropical forestry. This book describes the theoretical basis and practical application of 20 silvicultural systems.
"Presents both an essential introduction to forest structure and protection, and explanations of the applications of silvicultural systems and their relationships to forest management. . . . Contemporary topics, such as the silviculture of tropical forests and agroforestry systems, are incorporated to capture the interest of many natural resource and forestry professionals. Advanced undergraduates and up." --Choice
