This new book, Forest Management: Concepts and Applications, brings together information on research advances in forest management from a global and multifaceted perspective. It focuses on how forestry has changed over the years to address the current adverse impact of deforestation, global warming and climate change, and, overall, the growing human intervention of nature and natural resources.

The book begins with an introduction to the basic concepts of forest management, covering the principles, applications, and challenges. It also looks at advances in forest biometrics, exploring new methods for collecting and using statistical analyses of the biology of forests. Chapters cover the important aspects of forest management with up-to-date research, including recent technological advances, the effects of climate change along with mitigation methods, conservation practices, forest regeneration and reproduction methods, sustainable forestry management, and more. Other chapters discuss fire severity mapping in forests and showcase contemporary forest management practices and policies in several countries.
