Blurb/Shorttext:
Ecosystem services are increasingly recognized as being important for providing a wide range of conditions and processes which help sustain and fulfil human life if planned and managed properly. However, a clear understanding of exactly which services are being delivered by various ecosystems is still largely lacking. Some services are easy to identify and measure like the production of timber from forest plantations. However, many other ecosystem services are much harder to identify and quantify. Valuing and Caring for Forested Ecosystem: Integrated Assessment of Supporting Services from People Perspectives'... approaches sustainable forest management from local people perspectives. The book will be invaluable to people who are involved in planning and management of forest resources. It will also be useful to students in environmental, forestry and other related science schools and training centers. The book covers such areas as: 1. Identification of supporting services; 2. Stakeholder analysis; 3. Quantification of supporting services; 4. Valuation issues , and 5. Spatial distributions of supporting services.
