Wildlife and Woodchips: Leadbeater's Possum : a Test Case for Sustainable Forestry
Wildlife & Woodchips explores issues at the heart of the logging and woodchipping debate. It outlines the complexities of and solutions to long-term conservation of species. Above all, it presents an in-depth portrait of one of Australia's rarest and most endangered animals, and highlights the need to conserve our natural environment. This book is for general readers interested in environmental and conservation issues, field naturalists, researchers, and those involved in the exploitation and management of the natural environment. It will also provide useful case study material for students and teachers, from high school to university.
