Forests and woodlands provide an enormous range of goods and services to society, from timber and firewood to medicinal plants, watershed protection, destinations for tourists and sacred sites.

It covers the analysis of plant-based markets, non-market valuation and decision frameworks such as cost-benefit analysis.
