"Twenty-one contributions from international forestry researchers discuss scientifically based indicators for the sustainable management of natural forests and plantations. The information is applicable to boreal, temperate, and tropical biomes. A sampling of topics includes ecosystem-level forest biodiversity assessments; forecasting productive capacity for natural forests; and catchment and process studies in forest hydrology. The papers were originally presented at a conference held in Melbourne, Australia in August of 1998."--SciTech Book News
