As a natural science, silviculture has a large say in how humans interact with the terrestrial world. Although the perspective taken here that the production of wood is narrow, the amount of land area consumed is extensive, the indirect consequences of wood production on natural processes are larger still. Through the amount of land engaged, the flora and fauna affected and the environmental consequences, good or bad, silviculture is a frequent constituent in applied ecology, environmental science, conservation ecology and other broad land-use disciplines. Silvicultural expertize is essential when trees and wood are an economic output, often best promoted when silviculture is allied with hydrology, ecology, soil science, wildlife management, etc. This book touches upon the following important areas of the subject in detail.
Introduction. Agrobionomic Principles. Economic Measures and Spatial Patterns. Temporal Dynamics. Use Concepts. Niche Transitions and Ecological Services. Risk Containment. Monoculture. Bicultures. Three-Plus Polycultures. Taungyas. Natural Forest Management. Agroforests. Nature - Silvicultural Interface. Community Forestry. Silvicultural Landscapes. Perspectives.
