Description

Forestry is an important foundation of the global economy. Today, forestry is a human-dominated ecosystem and as such it faces the many challenges that come with recent changes in urbanization and globalization. This book aims to explain human relations with forest resources from social and political points of view, bringing together the economic, social, and scientific concerns. The focus will be on the impacts of the societal processes in forest management practices across the world highlighting differences in cultural backgrounds and political issues. It will provide a contemporary assessment that is highly relevant and unique.
