Forest Health and Protection by Edmonds, Agee, and Gara is a new text dedicated to integrating the three areas of Fire, Insects and Diseases into one text within the context of applied forest protection, (ecology, forest health and ecosystem management). The authors felt this new, integrated approach closely followed the new path of modern forest management which has embraced the concept of ecosystem management, as well as a new course that is emerging across campuses. Forest Health and Protection, allows instructors to take students from many areas of study including forestry, natural resources, and conservation - through a one semester course integrating fire, insects and diseases. Ideally students will have some knowledge of forest ecology, if not, there is a brief introduction to ecological principles in the introductory chapters.
