Environmental Sciences - Ecology and Forestry
The branch of chemistry concerned with the overall administration of forests is known as forest management. It includes economic, legal as well as social aspects. Scientific and technical aspects such as forest regulation, silviculture, forest protection, etc. also fall under this domain. Some of the focus areas of forest management are forest genetic resources, management of water, urban values, management for aesthetics, deriving wood products, etc. Conservation and economics are the two pillars of forest management. Some of its varied techniques include planting and replanting of different species, fire prevention, timber extraction and cutting roads and pathways through forests. The aim of such management is either economical, like increasing yields and forest products or ecological like carbon sequestration, species recovery, etc. This book presents the complex subject of forest management in the most comprehensible and easy to understand language. From theories to research to practical applications, case studies related to all contemporary topics of relevance to this field have been included herein. This book includes contributions of experts and scientists which will provide innovative insights into this discipline.
