  • From forest struggle to forest citizens ? Joint forest management in the unquiet woods of India's Jharkhand
  • Forest ; Forest policy ; Forest resources ; Forestry ; India ; Logging ; Participation ; Resource management
  • The AA. consider the role played by forest struggles and forest intellectuals in the rewriting of India's forest policies. They also evaluate the utility of a moral economy framework in guiding joint forest management policies. They draw on village
  • -level fieldwork to highlight the value of an approach to the management of Degraded Protected Forests that offer a key role to active and informed forest citizens.

  • Response of a Mediterranean riparian forest to a 1 in 400 year flood, Ouveze River, Drôme-Vaucluse, France
  • Deforestation ; Ecosystem ; Flood ; Forest ; France ; Geographical information system ; Human impact ; Mediterranean area ; Natural hazards ; Southern France ; Stream
  • This study provides original data concerning the impact of an exceptional 400-year flood on the riparian forest of a six order French Mediterranean river. Both the restricting effects of the forest on the flood and the hydraulic behaviour
  • of the forest during the flood were studied. Future legislation will have to take into account the nature of antropogenic activity in the area of the study.

  • A comparison of stream bank erosion processes on forested and moorland streams in the Balquhidder catchments, central Scotland
  • Afforestation ; Bank erosion ; Fluvial processes ; Forest ; Freezing ; Precipitation ; Scotland ; Seasonality ; Sediment budget ; Stream ; Swamp ; United Kingdom
  • Stream bank erosion rates measured over a two-year period on a moorland and a forested stream were compared. Bank erosion rates are generally higher on the mainstream of the moorland catchment and highest in winter on both streams. Bank erosion
  • implications for the management of forest streams are discussed.

  • Human and environmental influences on forest composition of a Tennessee loess bluff
  • Biogeography ; Ecology ; Forest ; Habitat ; Human impact ; Impact ; Land use ; Loess ; Oak ; Soil moisture ; Tennessee ; United States of America
  • This research examines the controls of tree-species distribution in an area that consists of a mosaic of former agricultural fields and uncleared bluff forest, on Mississippi River. The primary objectives are : 1) to determine the relative influence
  • of multiple variables on forest composition, including topographic-moisture avaibility and disturbance history; and 2) to characterize the role of particular species in relation to disturbance and habitat conditions. These patterns then are used to elucidate
