Realizing that society, economics and science are today challenged to devise a new theoretical framework for forestry Sustainable Forestry presents a unique vision of forestry for the next century.
In this important new book Chris Maser covers the ecological characteristics of forests; asking - what makes up a forest? He discusses the science and technology of forestry and the uncertainties we face in our attempts to manage forests throughout the world.
Sustainable Forestry also deals with current management problems within the forestry profession, beginning with university training and ending with dysfunction in land management agencies. Proposals for change are given, covering in detail what that means, how it's effected and how it's perceived. Important topics such as forest planning, establishing an environmental vision and resolving conflicts are also discussed.
Maser concludes with the possibilities for sustainable forestry into the twenty-first century, specifically discussing adaptive ecosystem management.

Review:

...Maser is in his element, and the book is both informative and entertaining...the 'what-ifs' are endless, but exceedingly relevant." -- American Scientist Magazine
