Forest management

Forest management is the branch of forestry concerned with the overall administrative, economic, legal, and social aspects and with the essentially scientific and technical aspects, especially silviculture, protection, and forest regulation. This includes management for aesthetics, fish, recreation, urban values, water, wilderness, wildlife, wood products, forest genetic resources and other forest resource values. Management can be based on conservation, economics, or a mixture of the two. Techniques include timber extraction, planting and replanting of various species, cutting roads and pathways through forests, and preventing fire.

Public input and awareness

There has been an increased public awareness of natural resource policy, including forest management. Public concern regarding forest management may have shifted from the extraction of timber to the preservation of additional forest resources, including wildlife and old growth forest, protecting biodiversity, watershed management, and recreation. Increased environmental awareness may contribute to an increased public mistrust of forest management professionals.

Many tools like GIS modelling have been developed to improve forest inventory and management planning.

Wildlife considerations

The abundance and diversity of birds, mammals, amphibians and other wildlife are affected by strategies and types of forest management.

Question:Governments and organizations around the world spend millions of dollars on wildlife conservation every year. While some initiatives have proved successful, others have failed to achieve the stated goals. Do you think money spent on wildlife conservation is money well spent? What are the advantages of biodiversity? Providing data on various wildlife conservation projects in India and abroad, make a case for these projects.

Answers:I think any money put towards conservation at any level is well spent. We are the Earths care takers, not take overs. I think you should do your own homework. Obviously this was a question for you and not for other YA users.


Answers:All wildlife play a critical role in doing things for our Earth. Polar bear control the artic fish population. If they, become extinct the artic sea waters would become over "crowded". Seals eat artic algae and artic algae suck up all the O2 in water and if the algae population got out of hand there wouldnt be an o2 in the water and the waters would then become inhabitibal by fish. Marshlands are key in filtering the polluted waters of sea water. Many animals call these marshlands home, yet the U.S. marshlands are threatened by hotels, resorts, and building porjects.

The Nature Conservancy - Forests :

Amazon Rainforest Conservation :Biologist Magaly Rengifo Aspajo from the Wildlife Conservation Society (Iquitos, Peru) speaks about current threats to land and bio-diversity in the Amazon rain forests. Magaly works with a small group of biologists, ecologists and conservation workers to implement strategies that will protect habitat and biodiversity against the threats of poaching and natural resource extraction (logging and oil). Shortly after this interview was recorded, one of Magaly's colleagues (Betsy) paddled to a sandy bank in the Samiria river to guard a site where two dozen turtle eggs were soon to hatch. At night poachers trawl the river's banks in search of eggs for the market, effectively decimating the turtle populations.
