            Planning A Wilderness: Regenerating the Great Lakes Cutover Region

            Planning A Wilderness: Regenerating the Great Lakes Cutover Region (Hardback, illustrated edition)

            By Kates, James

            In Planning a Wilderness, we see how the technical challenges that taxed the expertise of foresters, land economists, game managers, and regional planners were only one part of the enormous task. Kates tells of the equally arduous undertaking of selling reforestation to the publi...c, a campaign in which the experts and their allies in the mass media invoked popular myths of frontier individualism.

            Long a fire continent, Australia now finds itself at the leading edge of a fire epoch. Australia is one of the world's fire powers. It not only has regular bushfires, but in no other country has fire made such an impact on the national culture. Over the past two decades, bushfire...s have reasserted themselves as an environmental, social, and political presence. And now they dominate the national conversation. The Still-Burning Bush traces the ecological and social significance of the use of fire to shape the environment through Australian history, beginning with Aboriginal usage, and the subsequent passing of the firestick to rural colonists and then to foresters, to ecologists, and back to Indigenes. Each transfer kindled public debate not only over suitable fire practices but also about how Australians should live on the land. The 2009 Black Saturday bushfires and the 2019-2020 season have heightened the sense of urgency behind this discussion. In its original 2006 edition, The Still-Burning Bush concluded with the aftershocks of the 2003 bushfires. A new preface and epilogue updates the narrative, including the global changes that are affecting Australia. Especially pertinent is the concept of a Pyrocene - the idea that humanity's cumulative fire practices are fashioning the fire equivalent of an ice age. 'No-one has quite synthesised the questions of fire, science, history and society in Australia as Stephen Pyne has done ... Stephen Pyne, at his best, is - if not a poet - a beautiful writer. His prose has clarity and passion, filled with knowledge and understanding of a subject that has consumed much of his attention since the first of his 15 summers as a seasonal firefighter.' -John Schauble, History Australia ' An eloquent and provocative book'. -Simon Caterson, The Age 'An elegant and passionate contribution to a conversation that's often caught in spin, agendas, fear.' -Ashley Hay, The Bulletin

            Deforestation in tropical rainforest countries is one of the largest contributors to human-induced climate change. Deforestation, especially in the tropics, contributes around 20 per cent of annual global greenhouse gas emissions, and, in the case of Indonesia, amounts to 85 per ...cent of its annual emissions from human activities. This book provides a comprehensive assessment of the emerging legal and policy frameworks for managing forests as a key means to address climate change. The authors uniquely combine an assessment of the international rules for forestry governance with a detailed assessment of the legal and institutional context of Indonesia; one of the most globally important test case jurisdictions for the effective roll-out of 'Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation' (REDD). Using Indonesia as a key case study, the book explores challenges that heavily forested States face in resource management to address climate mitigation imperatives, such as providing safeguards for local communities and indigenous peoples. This book will be of great relevance to students, scholars and policymakers with an interest in international environmental law, climate change and environment and sustainability studies in general.

            Projecting modest future growth for both prices and harvest levels, this study, first published in 1990, provides theoretical and empirical justification for challenging the conventional wisdom that real timber prices will rise for the indefinite future. The study presents fifty-...year projections of regional and world harvest levels, world market price, and investments in forest regeneration by region. This book will be of particular interest to students of economics and environmental studies.
