"Forest Management and Planning arose from our desire to provide for students in forestry and natural resource management programs a focused treatment of the topics that are important for upper-level forest management courses. This book presents an extensive overview of the methodology one might use to develop forest and natural resource management plans, and to analyze a number of resource issues that are encountered by managers."--
