Название: Forest Ecology and Conservation: A Handbook of Techniques (Techniques in Ecology & Conservation)
Автор: Newton A.
For the past 25 years, forests have been the focus of international conservation
concern. High rates of deforestation and forest degradation are common in many
parts of the world, but it was the rapid loss of tropical rain forests that particularly
captured the attention of the world’s media from the early 1980s onwards. More
recently, it has been increasingly recognized that many other ecologically important
forest types, such as temperate rain forests and tropical dry forests, are also
being lost at an alarming rate. In response, particularly following the United
Nations Conference on Environment and Development in 1992, major international
efforts have been devoted to forest protection and sustainable management.
There have been some notable successes during this time, yet still the widespread
loss of forests continues.
