This comprehensive text on woodland and forest conservation has been revised to cover developments in management and policy implementation over the last ten years. The new edition retains the four part structure of its predecessor and deals with new perspectives on the historical and ecological development of woodlands, classification, recording and assessment, policy development and management strategies. Progress in landscape ecology, vegetation classification and management views have led to a new understanding and approach to managing woodlands and information has been updated throughout with new references and bibliographies. There is also a major new chapter focussing on changes in management and the effects and implications of future plans, and the whole work is discussed within a European context, particularly in regard to classification of vegetation and woodland types.
