No Timber Without Trees : Sustainability in the tropical forest Paperback / softback
by Duncan Poore
Part of the Natural Resource Management Set series
Much of the world's tropical timber is still supplied from natural forest, but under current systems of management the forests are rapidly becoming exhausted.
Unless management practices change to become genuinely sustainable, neither the forests nor the essential contribution of the timber industry to many economies will survive. Duncan Poore reviews the extent to which natural forests are already being sustainably managed for timber production, and looks at how these practices can be enlarged.
He places management for timber in the wider context of tropical forest conservation and outlines a strategy for further action.
Thoroughly researched and accessibly written, this book will be useful for everyone working or interested in the subject of tropical forests. Foreword by Dato Dr B.C.Y. FreezailahOriginally published in 1989
