  Commonwealth Forests  The Commonwealth Forestry Handbook 2001-2005

Commonwealth Forests is the first publication to give a complete overview of the state of forestry in the Commonwealth.  The book covers not only the extent and types of forests in the 53 Commonwealth countries, but also topics such as management and rates of deforestation.

"Commonwealth Forests is a wonderful new resource, but with a hard-hitting message. It reminds us in an objective and concise way that we are not learning the lessons of the past fast enough."  Dr Mark Collins. Director, Commonwealth Foundation, London.
