edited by: John M. Calhoun. 1998.
An appreciation of the multiple elements of successful forest policy, and an unwillingness to accept the oversimplification, polarization, and acrimony that characterize many aspects of the current forest policy dialogue, motivated a group of scholars to consider how they might encourage a new approach to the issue. This book presents their papers and discussions that resulted from a conference held in 1996 at the Olympic Natural Resources Center, located in Forks, Washington. IFR Contribution No. 78. 343 pp. $20.
URBAN FOREST LANDSCAPES: INTEGRATING MULTIDISCIPLINARY PERSPECTIVES
edited by: Gordon A. Bradley. 1995.
The multidisciplinary approach of this book recognizes the dilemma that in the attempt to solve urban forestry problems by developing landscapes that address specific goals such as fire safety, energy and water conservation, and wildlife preservation, other problems are sometimes created because scientific knowledge is lacking or because not all aspects of the situation have been considered. Urban Forest Landscapes takes a critical look at the current state of knowledge and research in the field, and at how available information is applied in the urban setting. The book includes contribution by twenty specialists. IFR Contribution No. 76. 224 pp. Cloth, $40; Paper, $20.

THE BURNING DECISION: REGIONAL PERSPECTIVES ON SLASH
edited by: D. P. Hanley, J. J. Kammenga, and C. D. Oliver, 1989
The use of prescribed burning, a slash treatment option, is gradually diminishing as a result of environmental and other concerns. In addition, improvements in forestry technology have prompted foresters to review the silvicultural need for slash burning. A symposium was developed to focus on what leads to the decision to burn slash, the technical and social impacts, and an analysis of current and future constraints. IFR Contribution No. 66. 384 pp. $20.
