Reviews

"Sustainable Forest Management provides a unique and up-to-date synthesis of the state of knowledge on sustainable forest management from a variety of environmental, economic, social, cultural, and governance perspectives. Highly recommended as an interdisciplinary teaching text for university courses in environmental sciences, particularly in forestry, ecology, geography." - John A. Parrotta, Vice President, International Union of Forest Research Organizations

"A broad, well-researched and up-to-date introduction to many aspects of sustainable forestry. The book covers a wide range of topics that address both ecological and social perspectives on managing these critical resources." - Marc McDill, Associate Professor of Forest Management, Penn State University, USA

"This book provides expert guidance for students on how the many dimensions of sustainable forest management, ranging from the maintenance of ecosystem health, biodiversity and soils to providing income and spiritual values, can be addressed in a comprehensive approach." - Jurgen Bauhus, Professor of Silviculture, Freiburg University, Germany

"Today's students need to be selective and devote their precious reading time to the very best books. Therefore, my recommendation to all forest students is simple: This is a book you must read!" - Bjoern Hanell, Professor of Silviculture, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, Sweden

"Writing and editing this book must have been a considerable undertaking and its publication is to be welcomed... it should prove to be an invaluable source of reference - and not only for students. Non-foresters engaged in forest policy discussions would benefit from at least skimming it, by reading all the chapter summaries and delving deeper into topics that interest them. And forestry professionals will benefit from refreshing their knowledge in areas with which they are less familiar - as well as pondering the judgements made about subjects in which they too are experts!" - David Henderson-Howat in International Forestry Review (2017)

"... as an overview of a complex, global topic, this book points to the things that need to be considered in sustainable forest management and will find a place in libraries and courses" - Peter Thomas in British Ecological Society Bulletin (December 2017)
