About this book

Based on the 1998 Joint Meeting of the North American Forest Biology Workshop and the Western Forest Genetics Association. It addresses changing priorities in forest resource management and discusses how the emphasis of forest research has shifted from productivity-based goals to goals related to sustainable development of forest resources.
