Description: Part of the diversity of a forest is the variety of agents that can kill trees. These agents differ in the nature, magnitude, and patterns of their impacts on forest resources. Diseases, insect pests, and other small-scale disturbances are commonly assessed on the basis of their impacts on timber production. Tree mortality usually means reduced volume of living stems. Consequently, forest pathologists and entomologists have traditionally maintained a negative view of these disturbances.

Keywords: non-timber forest resources, diseases, insect pests, small-scale disturbances, tree mortality
