About this book

Concentrating on British forestry, this book addresses two main themes. Firstly it argues that the commercial management of forestry and woodland is not inconsistent with, and indeed can encourage, a thriving and varied population of flora and fauna. Secondly it provides detailed guidance, in many cases species by species, on what can be done to encourage and sustain wildlife in particular forest environments.


Contents

Part 1 The evolution and management of forests: forests of the world; British forests and their history; the history and principles of conservation in Britain; the principles of forest management; managed broadleaved woodlands and their conservation value; conifers and conservation; the management of mixed forests for timber and conservation; guidelines for wildlife conservation within productive woodlands; woodlands of the future.
