  • 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
  • Bihar ; Exploitation forestière ; Foresterie ; Forêt ; Gestion des ressources ; Inde ; Jharkhand ; Participation ; Politique forestière ; Ressources forestières
  • 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.

  • The historic role of the forest community in sustaining the Black Hills National Forest as a complex common property multiple use resource
  • Environment ; Forest ; Mine ; Nature conservation ; Resource management ; Rural community ; South Dakota ; United States of America ; Wyoming
  • Communauté rurale ; Environnement ; Etats-Unis ; Forêt ; Gestion des ressources ; Mine ; Protection de la nature ; South Dakota ; Wyoming
  • A common property resource must be defined, and throughout the history of the Black Hills National Forest (1898 forward), there has been a community of people interested in defining and redefining it as a resource. Four historical periods
  • are discussed : the gold mining community, building of a forest community (interested in maintening multiple uses), fragmentation of the forest community, and progress toward a multiple-use definition. - (SLD)
  • Fir tree ; Forest ; Forest resources ; Forestry ; Nepal ; Resource management
  • Forêt ; Gestion des ressources ; Népal ; Ressources forestières ; Sapin ; Sylviculture
  • Internal dynamics of the fir forest make a steady flow of Abies spectabilis timber in Nepalese village forests impossible to sustain. Management practices exacerbate the problem. Alternative management options are presented.―(DWG)
  • The economics of extraction in Philippine forests: when timber turns to gold
  • Forest ; Forest resources ; Forestry ; Logging ; Philippines ; Resource management ; Wood
  • Bois ; Exploitation forestière ; Foresterie ; Forêt ; Gestion des ressources ; Philippines ; Ressources forestières
  • Comparison of income derived from harvesting timber vs. non-timber forest products in three different upland forests on the islands of Visayas, Luzon and Mindanao. Timber is by far the most valuable asset in each of the three cases examined. - (DWG)
  • The tropical forest : competing demands for preservation, exploitation, and conversion
  • Competition ; Forest ; Forest resources ; Forestry ; Latin America ; Nature conservation ; Resource management ; Tropical rain forest
  • Amérique latine ; Concurrence ; Exploitation forestière ; Forêt ; Forêt tropicale ; Gestion des ressources ; Protection de la nature ; Ressources forestières
  • The AA. assert that only through profitable management of forests for timber and non-timber products can forest cover be maintained in competition with pressures to convert forest land to other uses. This sustainability concept is important, since
  • parks can provide protection for only a small fraction of the remaining forests in Latin America.―(DWG)
  • Dynamic analysis and evaluation of Xinjiang forest resources : based on RS and GIS
  • China ; Forest ; Geographical information system ; LANDSAT ; Natural resources ; Remote sensing ; Thematic Mapper ; Xinjiang
  • Chine ; Forêt ; LANDSAT ; Ressource naturelle ; Système d'information géographique ; Thematic Mapper ; Télédétection ; Xinjiang
  • Based on GIS, related data obtained from satellite remote sensing in 1996 and 2001 were studied through contrastive analysis. Moreover, the dynamic variation of Xinjiang forest resources was studied in an all-around way. The analysis results showed
  • that the forest resources in Xinjiang were increasing on the whole, however, there remained some problems, such as the sparse natural forests, low forest cover rate, imbalanced wood age structure, and mono tree species composition.
  • The Russian forest sector: production, consumption, and export prospects
  • Consumption ; Economic potential ; Export ; Forest policy ; Forest resources ; Forestry ; Logging ; Production ; Russia ; Stand treatment ; Wood
  • Bois ; Consommation ; Exploitation forestière ; Exportation ; Foresterie ; Politique forestière ; Potentiel économique ; Production ; Ressources forestières ; Russie ; Sylviculture
  • This sector is described at the country level of detail, including a description of the growth of the forest resource over time and of the historical utilization of the forest resource, with a focus on the shares of output allocated for domestic
  • consumption and for export. The resource available for the future then is presented in terms of economic accessibility. Longer- term export opportunities are identified using a scenario analysis generated by the Russian Forest Sector Assessment Model.
  • Third World meets First World in the West Coast region of the South Island : possum hunting and the role of social forestry in indigenous forest management
  • Environment ; Fauna ; Forest ; Forest resources ; Forestry ; New Zealand ; Resource management ; South Island
  • Environnement ; Faune ; Foresterie ; Forêt ; Gestion des ressources ; Nouvelle-Zélande ; Ressources forestières ; South Island ; Sylviculture
  • The radical change in forest policy has profound implications for the West Coast, and an alternative to the conventional forest management framework is required which recognises the Government's desire to protect the indigenous forest cover, yet
  • Forest resources in a Nepali village in 1980 and 1990 : the positive influence of population growth
  • Forest ; Forest resources ; Himalaya ; Land use ; Mountain ; Nepal ; Population pressure ; Resource management ; Village
  • Forêt ; Gestion des ressources ; Himalaya ; Montagne ; Népal ; Pression démographique ; Ressources forestières ; Utilisation du sol ; Village
  • Between 1980-1990, the village of Bhogteni in the Middle Hills of central Nepal improved their forests despite an annual population growth rate of 2,5 percent. This empirical study poses provocative ideas on population pressure, resource use
  • Aldo Leopold and stewardship : lessons for forest planning and management in the Nordic countries ?
  • Europe ; Forest ; Forest resources ; Forestry ; Landscape esthetics ; Place ; Resource management ; Scandinavia
  • Esthétique du paysage ; Europe ; Foresterie ; Forêt ; Gestion des ressources ; Lieu ; Ressources forestières ; Scandinavie
  • The article presents some key aspects of A. Leopold's thinking that are of relevance for forest stewardship, and discusses these in relation to key forest stewardship trends in a Nordic forestry context. In the tradition, forest management
  • and planning are deeply rooted in local management practice carried out by official local supervisors in cooperation with forest owners and other stakeholders. Today's post-modern forestry includes complex multi-valued forest situations on different scales
  • , which are even more complex and challenging to manage than the more utilitarian historical forest was.

  • Unravelling property relations around forest carbon
  • Cambodia ; Carbon economy ; Forest ; Forest resources ; Land ; Landed property ; Papua New Guinea ; Philippines ; Resource management
  • Cambodge ; Economie du carbone ; Foncier ; Forêt ; Gestion des ressources ; Papouasie-Nouvelle-Guinée ; Philippines ; Propriété foncière ; Ressources forestières
  • Using examples from Cambodia, the Philippines and Papua New Guinea, the AA. examine the property negotiations underpinning the new forest carbon economy. They show that the institutions and land use negotiations needed to produce forest carbon
  • interact with existing property claims over land and forests. Claims to forest carbon are complicated by ambiguities and complexities surrounding rights to forested land. It creates an unstable basis for forest carbon markets and raises questions about
  • future access to forested land.

  • This paper reviews how the opportunities provided by satellite remote sensing have been exploited for the collection of information pertaining to forest resources and, building on these experiences, prospects for the future are highlighted. The use
  • of remote sensing in forest resource assessment provides 3 levels of information : the spatial extent of forest cover which can be used to assess the spatial dynamics of forest cover; forest type; biophysical and biochemical properties of forests.
