    The book's final section considers historical and current interactions of humans and rain forests. It explores biodiversity conservation as well as livelihood security for the many communities. Restoring tropical forests through tree planting and selective plant removal can rapidly increase the speed at which they recover from logging, a new study says. The research, published in Science, finds that logged tropical forests in Malaysia that were actively restored increased their ability to absorb carbon 50 per cent faster than logged.

    The international perspective for this book is the unprecedented level of concern over deforestation, recognized by the meeting of world leaders at the Earth Summit, in Rio do Janeiro, and culminating in the appoint­ ment of the Intergovernmental Panel on Forests (IPF), under the auspices of. The International Timber Trade Organization (ITTO) has published guidelines for sustainable forest management of natural tropical forests, for the conservation of biological diversity in tropical production forests, and criteria and indicators for sustainable forest management of natural tropical forests (ITTO , , , ).

    The average industrial timber production by eleven concession holders was approximately , m3 per year between and In , DRC exported , m3 of its log. While the informal forest sector remains poorly documented, it plays a key role in the overall timber production and especially in supplying domestic and regional markets.   Due to their high biodiversity, tropical forests generally have a greater ecological value than those in other parts of the world, but they are tragically being lost. Some of this is linked to timber harvesting for timber or paper, although much is tied to other commodities such as beef, soya, rubber, leather, palm oil, chocolate and coffee.

They have a vital role to play in conservation by: Timber production is often the most economic form of land use in tropical forest: forest preservation is rarely so. The aim of this book is to show that good management of production forests can. Book: Timber production and biodiversity conservation in tropical rain forests.

Guidelines for the Conservation and Sustainable Use of Biodiversity in Tropical Timber Production Forest 5 Introduction Tropical forests are of enormous importance for the conservation of the world’s species.

They contain more species than other biomes and a. Tropical forests are selectively logged at 20 times the rate at which they are cleared, and at least a fifth have already been disturbed in this a recent pan-tropical assessment, Burivalova et al. demonstrate the importance of logging intensity as a driver of biodiversity decline in timber estates.

Their analyses reveal that species richness of some taxa could decline by 50% at. Tropical rainforests can be characterized in two words: hot and wet. Mean monthly temperatures exceed 18 °C (64 °F) during all months of the year. Average annual rainfall is no less than 1, mm (66 in) and can exceed 10 m ( in) although it typically lies between 1, mm (69 in) and 3, mm ( in).

This high level of precipitation often results in poor soils due to leaching of. Mixed species plantations have been proposed as a ‘win-win’ situation for timber production and biodiversity (e.g., Lamb,Keenan et al.,Herbohn et al.,Hartley,Piotto et al., ).

However, this claim appears to be overstated, at least for biodiversity conservation in rainforest plantations. Net loss of forest area occurs largely in the tropics 6,7 and this forest loss continues to impact areas with particularly high conservation value 8,9.

Net primary production is estimated at gigatonnes carbon per year for tropical forests, for temperate forests, and for boreal forests.

[7] Forests at different latitudes and elevations form distinctly different ecozones: boreal forests around the poles, tropical forests around the Equator, and temperate forests at the middle.

This new edition of Conservation and Management of Tropical Rainforests applies the large body of knowledge, experience and tradition available to those who study tropical rainforests. Revised and updated in light of developments in science, technology, economics, politics, etc.

and their effects on tropical forests, it describes the principles. Tropical Rain Forest Ecology, Diversity, and Conservation introduces and explores what rain forests are, how they arose, what they contain, how they function, and how humans use and impact them.

The book starts by introducing the variety of rain forest plants, fungi, microorganisms, and animals, emphasising the spectacular diversity that is the. This book is intended to be a record of the Biotechnology-Assisted Re/Afforestation Project in the Asia-Pacific Region (BIO-REFOR) sinceconducted in coop eration with the International Union of Forest Research Organizations (lUFRO).

Buy Conservation of Tropical Coral Reefs: A Review of Financial and Strategic Solutions Hardback by McFarland Brian ISBN: Over 20% of the world's tropical forests have been selectively logged, and large expanses are allocated for future timber extraction.

Reduced-impact logging (RIL) is being promoted as best practice forestry that increases sustainability and lowers CO 2 emissions from logging, by reducing collateral damage associated with timber extraction.

RIL is also expected to minimize the impacts of. the importance of harmonizing the conservation of biodiversity and poverty reduction in a variety of forest contexts. The guide gives good practical advice with real-life examples from a range of forest situations: protected areas, production forests, agroforestry and degraded forests under restoration.

This publication sets out the specific actions that policymakers, forest managers and other stakeholders should take to improve biodiversity conservation in tropical production forests.

In this way, it aims to help in the conservation of arguably the planet s most valuable resource its diversity of life. We address this question for tropical forest landscapes designated for timber production.

We model carbon and biodiversity outcomes for four archetypal timber production systems that all deliver the same volume of timber but vary in their spatial extent and harvest intensity. We include impacts of variable deforestation risk (secure land tenure. To achieve both biodiversity conservation and timber production in tropical forests, this modelling study finds that improved management .Harvesting natural tropical rainforest with selective cutting systems for timber production is the greatest driver of forest disturbance (Willot et al.

;Franca et al. ), which affects.Most tropical forests outside protected areas have been or will be selectively logged so it is essential to maximize the conservation values of partially harvested areas. Here we examine the extent to which these forests sustain timber production, retain species, and conserve carbon stocks.
