about this item

Contributed by forestry and other specialists from around the world, the 20 chapters in this handbook cover key concepts in ecological forest management practices. They address forest management concepts beyond traditional ideas of sustained yield or wood supply analysis, discussing management systems, wildlife management, political and social issues, and ecosystem services; models that support ecological forest management, focusing on the basic concepts of forest models associated with the prediction of productivity or dynamic processes (growth and yield, succession, and process-based models); ecological indicators for forest ecosystems, including forest biomass determination, biodiversity, forest integrity, sustainable forest management, ecosystem and stand productivity, turnover times for wood, litter, and soil organic matter, and forest ecosystem health and biotic disturbances; and case studies on the application of surface modeling methods to estimate forest carbon stocks in China, forest tenure issues in relation to socioeconomic factors in Canada, and management strategies as adaptive measures to climate change in the temperate-boreal interface in eastern North America.
