        The boreal forest is important to Canada and the planet. Canada’s boreal forest ( million hectares) stores carbon, purifies the air and water, and regulates the climate. Because a large portion of the world’s boreal zone lies in Canada (28% or million hectares), this country’s boreal forest affects the health of the environment. This management-driven, comprehensive book on ecosystem ecology is the only one on the market that covers the entire field, linking conventional ecosystem-level forest ecology to forest features ecological site classification, ecosystem modeling, and strong sections on ecological diversity and the physical by:

ISBN Forest management--Environmental aspects--British Columbia, Northern. 2. Forest dynamics--British Columbia, Northern. 3. Ecological disturbances--British Columbia, Northern. I. Forest management is a branch of forestry concerned with overall administrative, legal, economic, and social aspects, as well as scientific and technical aspects, such as silviculture, protection, and forest includes management for aesthetics, fish, recreation, urban values, water, wilderness, wildlife, wood products, forest genetic resources, and other forest resource values.

      Boreal Forest Platform We co-founded and developed the Boreal Forest Platform in Russia which focuses on enhancing the exchange of best available forestry practices to ensure sustainable increase of yields in secondary forests and reducing the pressure on pristine forests. 78, hectares protected In north-west Russia, we secured agreements. progress towards sustainable forest management in temperate and boreal forests. Australia has therefore adopted the following criteria as one of the 12 signatory countries to represent forest values to be enhanced or preserved: 1. Conservation of biological diversity; 2. Maintenance of productive capacity of forest ecosystems; 3.

In general, the broader concept of sustainable forest management now seems to be accepted and accomplished in most boreal forest operations in western countries.

Sustainable forest management means following ecologically sound practices that maintain the forest ecosystems' integrity, productivity, resilience and involves sustaining a wide range of ecological processes through which plants, animals, micro-organisms, soil, water and air interact.

As a result of these processes, forests provide many functions essential to life on this. Implement world-leading sustainable forest management practices.
