Forest Resources and Sustainable Management
Edited by Seppo Kellomäki
The book outlines the principles and methods of sustainable forestry. It describes the functioning and structure of forest ecosystems and world forest resources. In brief, the textbook describes the main features of forests and forestry, including the production of timber and biomass and its delivery to the industry in the context of sustainability. The focus in this book is on forests and forestry in the boreal and temperate zones, particularly in the Nordic countries. The discussion includes, however, the global dimensions of forests and forestry to place local findings in a larger context whenever necessary.
