About this study on Forests and Forestry
The Level 3 of this study has been drafted in 2002 by Dr
Nicholas Menzies while he was a Visiting Scholar in the
Department of Environmental Science, Policy and Management,
College of Natural Resources, University of California, Berkeley.
He was helped in this task by Dr Elisabeth Grinspoon.
The Levels 2 and 1 are summaries of the Level
3 text, drafted by the GreenFacts
staff under the supervision of Dr Menzies.
Please note that this study is mainly devoted
to the environmental aspects of forest and forestry. It does
not cover some other important aspects such as the socio-economic
roles of forest exploitation.
