About this book

Global interest in forest conservation, biodiversity preservation, and non-timber values has risen while pressures on the forest as a source of income and employment have also increased. These demands are often conflicting, making forest planning, allocation and policy formation very complex. This volume explores theoretical and applied issues surrounding forest resource allocation.


Global environmental value and the tropical forests - demonstration and capture; local timber production and global trade - the environmental implications of forestry trade; pluralism and pragmatism in the pursuit of sustainable development; managing forests for all of their services; measuring recreation use and general public preservation values for forest resources - evidence from contingent valuation surveys; timber, adaptability, and social change in the Pacific Northwest; perspectives on educating forestry professionals in an environmentally conscious age.
