Forestry research : a mandate for change

Committee on Forestry Research, Board on Biology, Commission on Life Sciences [and] Board on Agriculture, National Research Council

Forests are valuable in our daily lives, crucial to our nation's economy, and integral to the long-term health of the environment. Yet, forestry research has been critically underfunded, and the data generated under current research programs is not enough to meet the diverse needs of our society. "Forestry Research" provides a research agenda that should yield the information we need to develop responsible policies for forest use and management. In this consensus of forestry experts, the volume explores: the diverse and competing concerns of the timber industry, recreational interests, and wildlife and environmental organizations; the gap between our need for information and the current output of the forestry research program; and areas of research requiring attention - biology of forest organisms, ecosystem function and management, human-forest interactions, wood as raw material, and international trade and competition. "Forestry Research" is an important book of special interest to federal and state policymakers involved in forestry issues, research managers, researchers, faculty, and students in the field.
