about this item
Forest Conservation in the Anthropocene provides thought-provoking insight on the ongoing environmental and climatological crises of climate change, questioning how it will alter North America’s forested regions and how public and private land managers will adapt to the climatological disruptions that are already transforming the ecological structures of these forests. In this pathbreaking anthology, a team of leading environmental scientists probes the central dilemmas that ecologists, forest land managers, state and federal agencies, and grassroots organizations are confronting—and will continue to confront—in the coming century. In each chapter they examine strategies that are currently being tested across the country as researchers, citizen-scientists, policy makers, academics, and activists work to grasp their options and opportunities for a future that will be shaped by ongoing environmental upheaval. Successful adaptation to the challenges of climate change requires a transdisciplinary perspective.Forest Conservation in the Anthropocene provides a compelling set of arguments and case studies that underscores the need for innovative policies and actions. The book will be of great interest to students, scholars, and professionals in environmental science, forestry, and ecology.
