Forests play a very important role in the life and economy of the country. Forest vegetation and its accompanying soil organism make up as much as 90 per cent of the total Biomass on land. Due to deforestation, the stability of many ecological sub-systems have been greatly disturbed. Forest cover in the catchment areas of the rivers, control soil erosion and recurrence of floods. Once the forest cover is damaged, severe soil erosion takes place disturbing the entire eco-system, chocking the dams and reservoirs with silt load and thereby promotes recurrence of floods. This book covers well researched and varied readings on forestry and forest resources conservation. Besides the academic worth, this book will prove of utmost use to environmentalists, and forest officers.
