Designed for students and professionals in forestry and landscape management, this text emphasizes conservation management and the use of forest resources. Management procedures are examined which relate to timber production, wilderness effects, cash flows, watershed values, recreational opportunities, aesthetic values, investments for biological diversity, and habitats for endangered plants and animals. The work integrates information from a wide array of disciplines to provide management procedures to fulfil a variety of objectives. The consequences for different trade-offs between market and non-market goods, services and effects are clearly explained, together with a systematic procedure for choosing the best course of action when managing forest landscapes.
