Synopsis

Forest Health An Integrated Perspective by John D. (State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry) Castello

Forest Health: An Integrated Perspective is the first book to define an ecologically rational, conceptual framework that unifies and integrates the many sub-disciplines that comprise the science of forest health and protection. This new global approach applies to boreal, temperate, tropical, natural, managed, even-aged, uneven-aged and urban forests, as well as plantations. Readers of the text can use real datasets to assess the sustainability of four forests around the world. Datasets for the case studies are at www.cambridge.org/9780521766692, and the text provides stepwise instructions for performing the calculations in Microsoft Excel. Readers can follow along as the editors perform the same calculations and interpret the results. Elevating forest health from a fuzzy concept to an ecologically sound paradigm, this is essential reading for undergraduate and graduate students and professionals interested in forest health, protection, entomology, pathology and ecology.

Reviews

'... a terrific new contribution to forest health science ... It is loaded with great information and well referenced ... the assembly of authors takes a broad perspective and seeks to educate the reader by providing significant detail to reinforce the concepts in a global perspective.'

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
