About the Authors
  • Forest Health: An Integrated Perspective is the first book to define an ecologically rational, conceptual framework that unifies and integrates the many sub-disciplines that comprise the science of forest health and protection. This new global approach applies to boreal, temperate, tropical, natural, managed, even-aged, un-even aged and urban forests, as well as plantations. Readers of the text can use real datasets to assess the sustainability of four forests around the world. Datasets for the case studies are at www.cambridge.org/9780521766692, and the text provides stepwise instructions for performing the calculations in Microsoft Excel. Readers can follow along as the editors perform the same calculations and interpret the results. Elevating forest health from a fuzzy concept to an ecologically sound paradigm, this is essential reading for undergraduate and graduate students and professionals interested in forest health, protection, entomology, pathology and ecology.

    • Unifies the diverse fields of forest health under one umbrella, facilitating student learning and interdisciplinary study
    • Provides case studies, exercises and stepwise instructions, and teaches students how to conduct their own forest health assessment
    • Chapters address the essential concepts that bridge the gap between biology and forestry, encouraging a broad-based understanding of the diverse concepts needed to comprehensively understand and assess forest health

    Reviews & endorsements

    "While some of the book is aimed at practitioners, several chapters provide excellent literature reviews on the theory that underlies studies of forest ecology, specifically aspects that govern forest health, useful for students. Recommended."
    D. Goldblum, Choice Magazine

    "The new book, Forest health: an integrated perspective, edited by John Castello and Stephen Teale, is a terrific new contribution to forest health science. Essentially, I see this book as forest health for ecologists. It is loaded with great information and well referenced."
    David C. Shaw, Ecology
