Contents Notes
"North American forestry practices until now have been based on an industrial model now widely perceived to be unsustainable and obsolete. Ecoforestry: The Art and Science of Sustainable Forest Use focuses on the new paradigm - the philosophy, goals, policies, and practices of ecologically and economically sustainable forest use." "Encyclopedic in scope, the topics covered in Ecoforestry include ecoforestry principles and practices; forest ecosystem components and restoration; ethnobotany; fire and ecosystem management; community forestry; wood and forest products certification; the deep ecology movement; and current ecoforestry practitioners and techniques." "Accessible to a wide audience ranging from foresters and loggers to environmentalists, restorationists, planners, policy analysts, students and ordinary citizens."--Jacket.
