Forestry is the science and craft of creating, managing, using, conserving, and repairing forests, woodlands, and associated resources for human and environmental benefits. Forestry is practiced in plantations and natural stands. The science of forestry has elements that belong to the biological, physical, social, political and managerial sciences. Non-timber forest products (NTFPs), also known as non-wood forest products (NWFPs), minor forest produce, special, minor, alternative and secondary forest products, are useful substances, materials and/or commodities obtained from forests which do not require harvesting (logging) include game animals, fur-bearers, nuts, seeds, berries, mushrooms, oils, sap, foliage, pollarding. The research programme described is intended to comprehensively answer key questions relating to in situ conservation of genetic resources. Outputs will be in the form of models of how landscape processes affect genetic level processes, and in the form of management prescriptions or policy options. In the case of research on tools and methodologies, outputs will obviously be improved methods.

About this book Tropical forests harbour much of the planet’s genetic resources, and therefore their conservation and sustainable utilization are matters of global concern.
Evolutionary processes in both untouched and managed forests are described, as is the role of genetics in plantation forestry and conservation. The present book constitutes a first step towards a more systematic approach to the provision of guidelines for harmonizing sustainable utilization and conservation of genetic resources of tropical forest trees.
Many presently prescribed forest management interventions could with minor adjustment be made less harmful to conservation concerns. Conservation Of Genetic Resources In Tropical Forest Management Principles And Concepts Fao Forestry PaPer Item Preview.
Although forest management interventions will cause more rapid changes in the composition of ecosystems than natural forces and, at times, will also accelerate or alter successional changes, such interventions can be rendered compatible with the conservation of the genetic resources of the species under use.
Management interventions in the forest can be aimed mainly at the production of timber, wood and other products, the protection of soil and water, or the conservation of biological diversity and genetic resources.
Conservation of genetic resources in tropical forest management - Principles and concepts, A decade of wood energy activities within the Nairobi Programme of Action, Directory of forestry research organizations, Proceedings of the Meeting of Experts on Forestry Research, (E/F/S) Sound decisions in genetic conservation and progress in long term breeding require detailed knowledge of the taxonomy, population structure, reproductive biology, mating systems, etc of the species concerned.
For many tropical forest tree species, little information is available and managers are faced with problems in developing effective. In the narrower context of the conservation of forest genetic resources, the multiple-use management of production and protection forests for the production of timber, NTFP for local use, environmental protection and the conservation of genetic resources provides a contribution to exemplify and help define the broader Conservation Strategy.
Conservation of forest genetic resources could be defined as a set of activities and strategies that are being implemented with the aim of ensuring the continued existence, evolution and.
Biodiversity and livelihoods in forest management > Non-timber forest products (NTFPs) The Millennium Ecosystem Assessment estimates that up to 96% of the value of forests is derived from non-timber forest products (NTFPs) and services (MEA ). The reports included in this volume come from seven national consultative workshops within the ITTO funded project on forest genetic resources, "Strengthening National Capacity and Regional Collaboration for Sustainable Use of Forest Genetic Resources in Tropical Asia".

Tropical forests harbour much of the planet’s genetic resources, and therefore their conservation and sustainable utilization are matters of global concern. Evolutionary processes in both untouched and managed forests are described, as is the role of genetics in plantation forestry and conservation.
Conservation Genetics Resources promotes the conservation of genetic diversity and advances the study of conservation genetics by providing rapid publication of technical papers and reviews on methodological innovations or improvements, computer programs, and genomic resources, as well as on the practical application of these resources towards the development of effective conservation policy and practice.
Conservation, improvement, and effective management of forest genetic resources (FGR) is basic to sustainable forest management but will require a holistic approach at various hierarchical levels (ecosystem, landscape, national and regional). This book provides a solid scientific basis for researchers, practitioners and students interested in the application of genetic principles to tropical forest ecology and : Reiner Finkeldey.
The objective of APFORGEN is to manage tropical forest genetic diversity more equitably, productively and sustainably in the participating countries, specifically the programme aims to: • Strengthen national programmes on forest genetic diversity • Enhance regional networking and collaboration.
Abstract. Forest genetic resources represent the genetic diversity contained in thousands of tree species on Earth, and can be defined as the genetic variability of tree species, which has a potential or real value for humans (FAO, Plant genetic resources: their conservation in situ for human use, ).Cited by: 3.
The book is primarily aimed at undergraduate students of biology, ecology, forestry, and graduate students of forest genetics, resource management policy and/or conservation biology.

Without proper management, human activity can lead to genetic erosion, reduced fitness and loss of evolutionary resilience in wild populations, and can also reduce opportunities for development of new and useful plant. Tropical Forest Management and Conservation of Biodiversity: an Overview Introduction Parks and protected areas are essen-tial for biodiversity conservation but inadequate to assure the continued existence of the majority of natural landscapes, ecosystems, communities, species, and genotypes in tropical for-ests.
Even if a goal of % protec. Major concepts, challenges and opportunities for conservation of forest genetic resources are brieﬂy discussed in this paper. The major challenges include population decline and. One-third of the references in this edition were published after the first edition.
