Forests: A Very Short Introduction

Written by Jaboury Ghazoul


OPL BOOK SUMMARY:  We are big fans of forests and the Very Short Introduction book series from Oxford University Press. They are fabulous books that provide serious introductions in a tiny book. They are written by experts in the field who combine facts, analysis, and exploration of ideas in an enthusiastic manner that makes them easy to read.

In Forests: A Very Short Introduction, you can go on a whirlwind tour that includes forest origins, connections with human culture, disturbance, and dynamics — and where we are going in the future. This book is a good place to start learning more about forests.
