It looks at four closely related themes: first, it describes the country's forests and their flora and fauna; secondly, it looks at the processes and policies by which human activity has altered these forests; thirdly, the environmental, biological and cultural consequences of these changes are studied; finally, the steps taken and needed to halt the destruction and bring about sustainable management of Malaysia's resources are discussed.
