About this book

Computer Applications in Sustainable Forest Management presents state-of-the-art computer applications in a variety of specialty areas of forestry, including inventory, remote sensing, information management, modelling and visualization, biometrics, forest and harvest planning, bioeconomics and marketing, and decision science for management. This book emphasizes integration, or collaborative use, of computer technologies across different disciplines through interdisciplinary research and development in North America, China, and Europe. It also offers important new insights on how to continue advancing computational technologies in forest management to better achieve the basic goal of sustainable forest management.

This book will be a valuable technical resource for resource managers, planners, administrators, researchers, educators, graduate students, and senior undergraduate students in the field of forestry. Case studies demonstrate integration of, or collaboration among, multiple computer applications for sustainable forest management.
