About this book

Forest Conservation in the Anthropocene provides thought-provoking insight into the ongoing environmental and climatological crises that climate change is generating and raises critical questions about how public and and private land managers in North America's will adapt to the climatological disruptions that are already transforming the ecological structures of these forests.

In this pathbreaking anthology, a team of leading environmental researchers probes the central dilemmas that ecologists, forest land managers, state and federal agencies, and grassroots organizations are confronting – and will continue to confront – in the coming century. In each chapter they examine strategies that are currently being tested across the country as scientists, citizen-scientists, policy makers, academics, and activists work to grasp their options and opportunities for a future that will be shaped by ongoing environmental upheaval.

Successful adaptation to the challenges of climate change requires a transdisciplinary perspective. Forest Conservation in the Anthropocene provides a compelling set of arguments and case studies that underscores the need for innovative policies and energetic actions. The book will be of great interest to students, scholars, and professionals in environmental science, forestry, and ecology.

Media reviews

"[This volume] addresses a very urgent issue [...] [and] needs to be read by everyone who is engaged in forest conservation and management."
– Ian Spellerberg, Lincoln University

"[W]ell researched and written by authors who represent the transdisciplinary nature of research on climate change impacts and policy in the context of forest environments. [...] a great addition to a reading list in an environmental management course or as a standalone reader for a university course on forest conservation. The extensive bibliography also serves as an excellent reference on this topic."
