'If we want a habitable planet in future this book should be placed in the hands of all influential people who can bring about the radical change for which it calls.' Ghillean Prance, Times Higher Education Supplement 'This is a fine book, which reviews the present status and future outlook of forests comprehensively, with stacks of ecological and economic statistics and broad-scope analyses.' Norman Myers, Nature ' ! Heartily recommended to any ecologist.' Bulletin of the British Ecological Society 'This well-written and well-illustrated book is essential reading for all ecologists/environmentalists.' A. Mannion, Biologist 'This well-written and well-illustrated book is essential reading for all ecologists/environmentalists.
