  • Continuous Cover Forestryby Timo Pukkala; Klaus Gadow

    Springer 2011; US$ 239.00

    Although the majority of the world's forest ecosystems are dominated by uneven-sized multi-species stands, forest management practice and theory has focused on the development of plantation monocultures to maximize the supply of timber at low cost. Societal expectations are changing, however, and uneven-aged multi-species ecosystems, selectively... more...

  • Post-Fire Management and Restoration of Southern European Forestsby Francisco Moreira; Margarita Arianoutsou; Piermaria Corona

    In spite of all the efforts made in fire prevention and suppression, every year about 45 000 forest fires occur in Europe, burning ca. 0.5 million hectares of forests and other rural lands. The management of these burned forests has been given much less attention than fire prevention or fire suppression issues, but the post-fire management of burned... more...

    CSIRO Publishing 2014; US$ 138.95

    Carbon capture and geological storage (CCS) is presently the only way that we can make deep cuts in emissions from fossil fuel-based, large-scale sources of CO2 such as power stations and industrial plants. But if this technology is to be acceptable to the community, it is essential that it is credibly demonstrated by world-class scientists and engineers... more...
