9780198509479: Plantation Forestry in the Tropics: The Role, Silviculture, and Use of Planted Forests for Industrial, Social, Environmental, and Agroforestry Purposes

As the rain forests disappear, development of planted forests in tropical countries is accelerating to satisfy the ever-growing global demands for wood products as well as to improve the local environment and livelihoods of poor people. In 24 illustrated and fully referenced chapters, this book presents both the historical context and current developments in planting trees in the tropics. Contemporary issues such as engaging with stakeholders and sustainable management practices in planted forests are also addressed. This expanded third edition will provide students with a comprehensive introduction to the principles and practices of tropical plantation forestry as part of sustainable land use. Professional foresters, development specialists, and all with an interest in tropical forest management will find this a valuable reference text.

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2004. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 3rd Revised edition. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Development of planted forests in tropical and subtropical countries is accelerating to satisfy the ever-growing global demand for wood products. Indeed, it is expected that within 20 years half of all wood fibre in the world will be sourced from plantations, of which more than half are in the tropics and subtropics. As well as intensively managed industrial wood plantations, trees are increasingly being planted as part of farming systems - to control erosion and rehabilitate degraded lands and forests. Active community involvement in tree planting as part of rural development is now widespread and welcome. Plantation Forestry in the Tropics provides an overview that sets plantation silviculture in the wider context of development processes and their social, environmental and ecological impacts. The structure and approach of previous editions have been retained but every chapter has been comprehensively revised and updated. Two new chapters, one on clonal forestry, the other on ecological restoration, have also been added although the central theme remains the silviculture that underpins successful industrial planted forests. Overall, the book provides an up-to-date account of silvicultural practices, some of the socio-economic essentials, and the key role tree planting now plays in natural resource management and improving rural livelihoods in the tropics. Contemporary issues such as full stakeholder participation and sustainable management practices in planted forests are also addressed. The authors have drawn on their field experience from over 40 tropical and sub-tropical countries, and readers will find examples from Africa, Latin America, tropical Asia and the Pacific. Both the historical context and recent developments are presented, and examples are drawn from industrial plantations, rural development plantings, agroforestry and tree planting for soil protection and rehabilitation of degraded forests. Students, professional foresters, development specialists, and all with an interest in tropical forest management will find this a valuable reference text. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9780198509479
