This new volume emphasizes the drastic quantitative and qualitative transformation of our surrounding environment. It looks at bioresource management and the tools needed to manage environmental stresses. This unique compilation and interpretation of concrete scientific ventures undertaken by environmental specialists at the global level explores research dedicated to the management of natural resources by controlling biotic and abiotic factors making the earth vulnerable to these stresses. The book outlines the series of important developments in the recent past on bioresource and stress management.

The chapter authors in Sustainable Bioresource Management: Climate Change Mitigation and Natural Resource Conservation look at all types of bioresources on earth and their management at times of stress/crisis, focusing on the need for documentation, validation, and recovery of ethnic indigenous knowledge and practices that could have great impact in stress management.

The book looks at topics in nature and changing climate management, adaptation, and mitigation, such as the effects of climate change on agriculture and horticulture, on timber harvesting, and on forest resources.
