9780742531345: Forest Futures: Science, Politics, and Policy for the Next Century

Forest Futures is an exciting collection of original essays written by leading scientists, policy analysts, public lands managers, and advocates that addresses four related issues regarding the future of our nation's forests: ideas and practices of sustainable forestry; science and policymaking; threatened and endangered species protection on forested lands; and the future of public forest lands management. Offering a genuine debate and dialogue, Forest Futures discusses the present and future of our nation's forests in light of the current debate on forest management concepts, practices, and compromises established a decade ago. Brings together the observations and analyses of forest scientists, land managers, social scientists, and legal advocates to address common concerns regarding the state of our nation's forests, Essays are uniquely and comprehensively integrated due to a distinctive "dialogic" approach, Includes a unique section on the relationship between science and policy―exploring the questions of scientific uncertainty and the use and abuse of science with the policy process. Forest Futures is an important and timely work ideal for environmental science, environmental policy, and forestry college courses, as well as for policymakers, citizens, and activists interested in forest policy related issues.
