Applications of Physiological Ecology to Forest Management

  • ID: 3692638

  • January 1997
  • Elsevier Science and Technology

Forest management is a complex process that now incorporates information obtained from many sources. It is increasingly obvious that the physiological status of the trees in a forest has a dramatic impact on the likely success of any particular management strategy. Indeed, models described in this book that deal with forest productivity and sustainability require physiological information. This information can only be obtained from an understanding of the basic biological mechanisms and processes that contribute to individual tree growth.

This valuable book illustrates that physiological ecology is a fundamental element of proficient forest management.
