Management of Tasmanian Eucalypt Forests as Complex Adaptive Systems


Baker, S, Management of Tasmanian Eucalypt Forests as Complex Adaptive Systems, Managing Forests as Complex Adaptive Systems, Routledge, C Messier, KJ Puettmann, KD Coates (ed), United Kingdom, pp. 269-2. ISBN 978-0-415-51977-9 (2012) [Other Book Chapter]


This book links the emerging concepts of complexity, complex adaptive system (CAS) and resilience to forest ecology and management. It explores how these concepts can be applied in various forest biomes of the world with their different ecological, economic and social settings, and history. Individual chapters stress different elements of these concepts based on the specific setting and expertise of the authors. Regions and authors have been selected to cover a diversity of viewpoints and emphases, from silviculture and natural forests to forest restoration, and from boreal to tropical forests.
