Title: Forest diversity - new concepts and applications

Author: Boyce, Stephen G.; Cost, Noel D.;

Date: 1978

Source: Res. Pap. SE-194. Asheville, NC: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Southeastern Forest Experiment Station. 36 p.

Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)

Description: Previously, no regulations existed that provided for a diversity of forest plant and animal communities and the preservation of indigenous tree species, nor were consumer attitudes regarding social and economic benefits and multiple use of forests so clearly delineated. The Act necessitated first of all, the development of an operational definition of "diversity" that would have a common meaning to foresters and forest managers. This paper provides such a definition and sets forth new concepts and applications of forest management designed to bring about the improvements desired.

Keywords: diversity, renewable resources, multiple-use, stability
