Defining sustainable forest management (SFM) in the tropics

Code: 9781786769039
Francis E. Putz, University of Florida-Gainesville, USA; and Ian D. Thompson, Thompson Forest Ltd.-Kelowna, Canada

Chapter synopsis: This chapter discusses definitions of SFM to promote clarity about the avoidable and unavoidable tradeoffs associated with SFM. The chapter reviews about spatial scales for SFM and for the expansion of the scale at which sustainability is considered from stands up to forested landscapes. We review expanding the scope of SFM from individual stands, to which many definitions of SFM pertain, to the scale of forested landscapes, in keeping with other efforts towards comprehensiveness of land use planning.
