Recognizing the increased interest in forest management world wide,
this book addresses the current knowledge gap by defining
sustainable forest management, clarifying methods by which
ecological knowledge can be applied and how traditional
silvicultural methods can be improved.
Sustainable forest management involves the enhancement of various
aspects of forest functions such as conservation of biodiversity,
conservation of soil and water resources, contribution to the
global carbon cycle as well as wood production. To establish
ecological and silvicultural theories to enhance these functions
harmoniously, recognizing the relationship between stand structures
and their functions is essential.
This volume presents target stand structures for aimed forest
functions in relation to stand development stages, as well as
ecological and silvicultural methods to lead and maintain them.
Ecological and silvicultural strategies are discussed, both on
stand and landscape levels, and from local to international levels
in temperate and boreal forest zones.
