Plantations and Protected Areas

In response, many countries have established forest areas protected from development. In this book, Brett Bennett views today's forestry issues from a historical perspective.

Plantations and Protected Areas

How global forest management shifted from an integrated conservation model to a bifurcated system of timber plantations and protected areas.

Plantations and Protected Areas in Sustainable Forestry

This book provides a solid foundation on which to form a consensus that addresses the needs of economics and society as well as forest conservation.

Plantations and Protected Areas in Sustainable Forestry

Understand the social, economic, and environmental impacts of the development of forest plantations—and the conservation involved Controversy surrounds the question of how to best protect forests of high conservation value, while meeting the growing demands for wood and wood fiber-based products. Plantations and Protected Areas in Sustainable Forestry presents the views of a diverse group of conservationists and natural resource professionals who examine important social and economic as well as ecological aspects of the debate. The goal of sustainable forest management is kept at the forefront of the discussions, while alternative strategies to meet economic and social needs are explored in light of the need to conserve biological diversity and protect other important ecological services and environmental values in key forest areas. For developed nations, there is an ethical responsibility to consider sensible development as well as environmental conservation. Plantations and Protected Areas in Sustainable Forestry discusses many of the prominent issues that are raised when considering intensively managed forests (plantations) and/or strict protection of high conservation value forests (protected areas) in the United States and elsewhere. These issues include: the role of plantations and their management; forest management certification to ensure sustainability; job creation from plantations, the effects of intensive forest management on society and the environment; and the protection of biodiversity. This book provides a solid foundation on which to form a consensus that addresses the needs of economics and society as well as forest conservation. Topics in Plantations and Protected Areas in Sustainable Forestry include: the future of forest plantations forest management certification community benefits derived from intensively managed industrial roundwood plantations the extent to which intensive forest management practices on plantations prevent degradation of natural forests positive and negative impacts of plantations on environmental and social values alternative approaches for investment in wood production global policy perspectives on intensive forest production global strategies for biodiversity conservation Plantations and Protected Areas in Sustainable Forestry provides a diversity of perspectives on one of today’s most important developments in international forest policy and international trade in the forest sector. It is intended to contribute to better-informed decision-making, and is an important book for policymakers, forest resource management professionals, and business leaders working to develop practical and effective strategies for sustainable forest management.

Conserving Biodiversity Outside Protected Areas

Limits to expansion of protected area systems underline the importance of seeking new ways to conserve biodiversity. The twelve case studies ranging from the High Andes to Viet Nam support the view that certain traditional agricultural and pastoral systems can succeed in attaining a sustainable level of production while at the same time maintaining both a high level of biodiversity and most functional aspects of the ecosystems.

Ecological restoration of abandoned tea plantations

Globally, millions of hectares of tropical forests have been cleared and replaced with commercial plantations. Many of these plantations are abandoned or put to alternative use. Abandoned plantations provide opportunities that compensate to an extent, forest cover depletion in the tropics. However, restoration of such abandoned land to natural forests involves a complex interplay of ecological, socio-economic and legal issues. Apart from ecological issues of colonisation, there are social issues of rehabilitating people once they lose their livelihood, legal rights of the landowner, economics of abandonment and finally legal issues such as protected areas (PAs) act and legislation that can lead to abandonment. In the Western Ghats, tea plantations were established in the rainforest during the colonial rule and are owned by individuals or large companies. During the globalisation process, the demand for tea decreased and many small owners could not maintain their plantations due to labour and other issues which led to the abandonment of many such plantations. In addition, plantations established during the British rule are now inside PAs, and they face closure once the lease on the land expires. In the Trivandrum division alone, which has a large number of plantations, almost 55% have been abandoned. In areas that lie within PAs, forest managers are keen that the plantations should be annexed to the PA, but such large-scale abandonment of land provides a challenge to restoration of native species. This book addresses the ecological aspects of colonisation by native tree species in the abandoned plantations within a PA and suggests restoration activities from ecological and social perspectives, helpful to forest and plantation managers.
