What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

'This book will make a useful contribution to the world’s knowledge and future research directions for sustainable forest management. Dr Stanturf has once again assembled an excellent, international group of scientists to compile an in-depth volume. The subjects to be covered and the experts chosen mean the book will long be used to understand the many building blocks of the sciences behind sustainable forest management.'
Chad Oliver, Pinchot Professor of Forestry and Environmental Studies, and Director of the Global Institute of Sustainable Forestry, Yale University, USA
