About this book

Comprehensive examination of the revolutionary changes ocurring in the management of India's forests. Over the past two decades, responding to scarcities, thousands of villages have taken charge of public forests, thereby controlling grazing and cutting. The result has been a striking renewal of once badly degraded ecosystems. Lush young biodiversity-rich secondary forests are emerging in many parts of central India.
