Booknews
Summarizes the information presented at the annual workshops of the International Energy Agency's Bioenergy Agreement Project on the Environmental Impacts of Intensive Harvesting, initiated in 1985. Reports the impact of logging on the quality of air and water, biodiversity, habitat integrity, long-term productivity, and off-site environmental quality. Other topics include the need for long-term site productivity research, the methodologies used to investigate the impacts of harvesting and site preparation on site quality and off-site values, predicting impacts using classification systems and computer simulation, identifying and investigating the key ecosystem processes, and operational perspectives of management systems.
