Abstract:

The continuous destruction of forests around the world contributes to global warming and to systematic and progressive impoverishment of land and people. In this book, scientists, legal experts, and economists document the importance of forests in the workings of the biosphere and define the issues involved in using and protecting the great forests of the earth. They conclude by recommending the creation of an independent international commission that will weigh the environmental, economic, and technological implications of various policy options on the conservation and development of forests and then pursue appropriate action.
