Book description

This comprehensive handbook provides a unique resource covering all aspects of forest ecology from a global perspective. It covers both natural and managed forests, from boreal, temperate, sub-tropical and tropical regions of the world. The book is divided into seven parts, addressing the following themes: 

  • forest types 
  • forest dynamics 
  • forest flora and fauna 
  • energy and nutrients 
  • forest conservation and management 
  • forests and climate change 
  • human impacts on forest ecology. 

While each chapter can stand alone as a suitable resource for a lecture or seminar, the complete book provides an essential reference text for a wide range of students of ecology, environmental science, forestry, geography and natural resource management. Contributors include leading authorities from all parts of the world.
