Forestry and Environmental Change: Socioeconomic and Political Dimensions
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungConsiderable emphasis has been placed on the interactions between environmental change and forests in recent years. Reports have been produced detailing scenarios of forest development associated with particular changes in climate. Similarly, scenarios have been produced looking at likely trends in air quality. However, many studies have failed to recognize that some of the biggest changes for forests are related to the socioeconomic environment rather that the physical environment. This book considers the interactions between forestry and environmental (climatic) change, from social and economic perspectives.
