Journal of Biodiversity Management & Forestry is a peer-reviewed scholarly online journal and aims to publish the most complete and reliable source of information on the discoveries and current developments in the mode of original articles, review articles, case reports, short communications, etc. in all major themes pertaining to biodiversity & forest management and . The resulting BIOFOREST project was a large-scale project running from to with the aim of providing much-needed basic information on biodiversity in Irish plantation forests. The focus of this research was to illustrate the effects of different aspects of management on biodiversity within forests, from the planning stage through to.

Palm oil is the most widely traded vegetable oil globally, with demand projected to increase substantially in the future. Almost all oil palm grows in areas that were once tropical moist forests, some of them quite recently. The conversion to date, and future expansion, threatens biodiversity and increases greenhouse gas emissions. Today, consumer pressure is pushing companies Cited by: biodiversity risks favouring reductionist policies, which reduce forests to mere tree cover or carbon stocks (or even intended tree cover) – regardless of whether the trees are part of a diverse living ecosystem, a monoculture tree plantation, or even aFile Size: KB.

However, the lower levels of biodiversity commonly reported in plantation forests may, in part, be due to the fact that most of these plantations are comprised of exotic or non-native species. Losses of natural and semi-natural forests, mostly to agriculture, are a significant concern for biodiversity.
Against this trend, the area of intensively managed plantation forests increases, and there is much debate about the implications for biodiversity.

This book brings together a selection of original research articles that address biodiversity and conservation in plantation forests. Although such forests are perhaps the ‘poor cousins’ of the species richer natural and semi-natural forests, they can still make a significant contribution to biodiversity conservation.
There are over million ha of plantation forests around the world. They supply about one-third of wood used for industrial purposes, mainly building and : Philip West. Roger R.B. Leakey, in Multifunctional Agriculture, Biodiversity Conservation.
All agroforestry systems are more diverse than crop or forest plantation monocultures, while some, such as the complex agroforests of Southeast Asia, are nearly as diverse as natural forests (Thiollay, ).But, importantly, agroforestry also helps to conserve plant and animal biodiversity by.

1 Plantation forests and biodiversity: Oxymoron or opportunity. Forests form the natural vegetation over much of the Earth’s land, and they are critical for the survival of innumerable organisms. The ongoing loss of natural forests, which in some regions may have taken many millennia to develop, is one of the main reasons for the decline of Pages: This is the first book to examine explicitly the non-timber goods and services provided by plantation forests, including soil, water and biodiversity conservation, as well as carbon sequestration and the provision of local by: This is the first book to examine explicitly the non-timber goods and services provided by plantation forests, including soil, water and biodiversity conservation, as well as carbon sequestration and the provision of local livelihoods.
Book Description. Plantation forests often have a negative image. They are typically assumed to be poor substitutes for natural forests, particularly in terms of biodiversity conservation, carbon storage, provision of clean drinking water and other non-timber goods and services.

Plantation forests and biodiversity: oxymoron or opportunity?. [Eckehard G Brockerhoff; John A Parrotta;] -- This book brings together a selection of original studies submitted to "Biodiversity and Conservation" that address biodiversity and conservation in Europe.
Europe is certainly the most intensively.Forests are among the most important providers of ecosystem services .Forests are home to more than half of the known terrestrial plant and animal species , and deforestation is the major cause of biodiversity loss [3,4].Since the global annual rate of natural forest loss is %  and appears difficult to reverse, plantation forests may sometimes be a “ lesser evil ” compared to Cited by: 1.
