Ecoforestry : The Art and Science of Sustainable Forest Use Paperback 320 pages April 1997 Dimensions (in inches): 0.90 x 8.98 x 8.02 Independent Presses Editor’s Recommended Book What can a weekend gardener do about the conditions of the world’s forests? Plenty. Respect for the land fosters universal values that inspire responsible use of lumber and wildlife resources. Ecoforestry explains what can be done on the personal and national levels. According to World Resources Institute, forests cover nearly 40 percent of Earth’s land area. The plants provide oxygen to our planet and relieve it of excess carbon monoxide. Forests thrill us with their beauty and sustain a panoply of wildlife and plant life. The authors concur that our efforts toward conservation must take into account the future needs of our children and grandchildren, and that forestry practices must be consistent with the cycles and diversity of the natural forest.
