Widely recognized as the best treatment of the technical issues concerning forest health and forest protection available, the original edition of this comprehensive text was the first to treat fire, wind, insects, and diseases as well as their interactions holistically. The latest edition extends the thrust of the successful first edition, bringing updated, detailed, and reliable coverage by the same team of authors with decades of experience and expertise in the fields of forest pathology, fire ecology, and forest entomology. Their effective, integrative approach continues to focus on the fundamental issues related to forest protection, including ecology, forest health, and ecosystem management. Useful examples from the United States, Canada, and other countries illustrate principles and problems essential to understanding these issues.
Now with expanded material on climate change effects and forest health monitoring, no other single resource better prepares students and natural resource professionals for the protection and management of sustained forest health.
