About this book

The Forest Landscape Restoration Handbook, written by leading international authorities is the first comprehensive, practical treatment of Forest Landscape Restoration (FLR). As an approach to conservation, FLR provides a complementary framework to sustainable forest management and the ecosystem approach in landscapes in cases where forest loss has caused a decline in the quality of ecosystem services. The main aim of FLR is not to re-establish pristine forest, even if this were possible, rather the objective is to strengthen the resilience of landscapes and thereby keep future management options open. It also aims to support communities as they strive to increase and sustain the benefits they derive from the management of land.

The Forest Landscape Restoration Handbook has been written by a team of experts from a wide variety of institutions coordinated by the International Tropical Timber Organization (ITTO) and the World Conservation Union (IUCN). It explains the FLR concept and describes its main elements in chapters on adaptive management, landscape mosaics, landscape dynamics, stakeholder approaches, the identification of site-level options, hands-on site-level forest restoration and rehabilitation strategies, scenario modelling, and monitoring and evaluation.

The result is by far the most comprehensive, practical and easy-to-understand treatment of FLR yet written and is an indispensable handbook for practitioners in all aspects of forestry and natural resource management.
