Description: Introduction to Forestry and Natural Resources presents a broad overview of the profession of forestry, introducing a number of fields within forestry to intrigue readers and thus stimulate them to seek more information on these topics. Key subjects emphasized are forest health, economics, policy, utilization, and forestry careers. This book provides a concise overview of these topics for undergraduate introductory courses, and includes numerous examples (mainly graphical) and questions for students to ponder.
