Title: The politics of forestry [book review]

Author: Sturtevant, Brian.;

Date: 2010

Source: Landscape Ecology. 25: 981-982.

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: This book is a call to action--nearly a call to arms--designed to put a face on the plight of ancient forests both within the United States (US) and world-wide. In the author's words, "The purpose of this book is to explain how forests work, to discuss the fate of forests, and to suggest principles to their proper management." It accomplishes this with remarkable brevity, thoughtfully written with the general public as its intended target audience.
