Originally published in 1976, this title concentrates upon the management of national forests. Using the best data available, Marion Clawson considers all outputs of the national forests and all costs of national forest management to analyse forests from an economics perspective. The Economics of National Forest Management is ideal for policy makers, professional foresters, and students interested in environmental studies.
