About this book

This conference, entitled "Meeting the Challenge: Silvicultural Research in a Changing World", was convened to explore the changing role and expectations of silviculture to meet new challenges and societal needs around the world. Through their presentations of current research and subsequent discussions, conference participants considered how silvicultural research findings and new research initiatives can be best applied to solve emerging forest management issues. Technical sessions included presentations and discussion of papers on a broad range of topics related to landscape - level forest management, tropical forest management, management for non - timber values and forest health, social forestry and traditional forest management, uneven - aged management for multiple uses, quantifying and modeling the effects of silvicultural treatments, plantation management, forest restoration, and silvicultural approaches to biodiversity conservation.
