Title: Ecological forestry: Much more than retention harvesting
Author: Palik, Brian J.; D'Amato, Anthony W.;
Source: Journal of Forestry. 115(1): 51-53.
Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)
Description: We read with interest the recent Journal of Forestry article on "Conceptual Ambiguities and Practical Challenges of Ecological Forestry: A Critical Review" (Batavia and Nelson 2016). In it, Batavia and Nelson do a good job of bringing attention to the concept of ecological forestry, and we agree that a clear understanding of what it is and what it can be is a useful undertaking; one that would likely open the door to even greater adoption by stakeholders. Moreover, a discussion of the need for an "appropriate ethic" for ecological forestry may be beneficial, and Batavia and Nelson’s suggestion of workshops and conferences on the topic would seem a step in the right direction, as does their call for increased attention given to ethics training in natural resource programs and forest management planning.
