This book provides a theoretical basis and a collection of management science tools that account for the interactions between different components of a managed forest ecosystem. Accounting for these interactions is the rapid evolution of forest management away from a traditional agricultural commodities production problem to a multi-output problem that gives equivalent emphasis to nonmarket goods and the health of forest ecosystem itself. The book is a comprehensive theoretical demonstration of the breakdown of traditional benefit/cost analysis in the presence of forest ecosystem (or demand) inteactions and is followed by a set of management science (optimization) procedures that address these interactions and better capture the ecosystem function.

Key Features

  • Discusses optimization under conditions of risk and uncertainity in forest management
  • Explores spatial optimization and multi-level optimization in forest management
  • Examines joint production theory and joint cost allocation in forest management


Forestry professionals, graduate students, forest and other ecosystem modelers, government agencies and practicing natural resource planners
