Combining broad coverage with excellent science, Encyclopedia of Forest Sciences is sure to become the standard reference work in the field. Recent advances in forest science techniques make this an excellent time to summarize current knowledge in a comprehensive reference work. Including reviews of the biological, managerial, social and economic aspects of forest science, this work also ranges from pure molecular biology to the production and use of wood and non-wood products. It incorporates detailed reviews of major tree species’ taxonomy and genetics, the world’s forest ecosystems and their ecology, and the biotic, climatic, edaphic and hydrological influences of forests. This four-volume set also includes consideration of the social, public and political aspects of forests and the instruments to support effective management.
