Forests for the Future

by Edward Parker

Hardcover(Library Binding)



Covering some 30% of the earth's land surface, forests form some of the most spectacular and important ecosystems on Earth, providing habitats for millions of animal and plant species. They are also home to millions of indigenous people around the world who depend on them for food, shelter, fuel, and medicines. Forests provide the industrial world with timber, wood pulp, gums, resins, nuts, fruits, and medicinal plants. The cutting down of rain forests and the future role of forests in the world's environment are strongly positioned.
